One New Brighton man is dead and a woman is injured after a neighbor allegedly opened fire and shot at them in their front yard Monday night, according to police.
The neighbor who allegedly shot them had an ongoing dispute with the victims about feeding deer on the victims' property, police said. The man was declared dead at the scene, and the woman was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
The incident took place outside their house at the 2500 block of Knollwood Drive in New Brighton, around 8:30 p.m.
The suspect had gone inside his own home after the incident, but then surrendered to police, according to New Brighton Police. He was booked at the Ramsey County Jail on pending charges of second degree murder and attempted second degree murder.
The woman had an active restraining order against the suspect, and he previously violated the order and was cited, according to police.
The last reported homicide in New Brighton was in 2010, when a retired New Brighton firefighter, Lee Goodwin, was discovered dead in his home. His death remains unsolved, according to police.
