59-Year-Old Man Guns Down His Neighbours for Noise Making
A 59-Year-Old man has been arrested after he allegedly opened fire from his AK-47 rifle on his neighbours who he claimed had been disturbing him with noise.
According to CBS affiliate KOIN, Franklin Laine Tomes had been having a dispute with his neighbours upstairs over noise making.
Reports claim that Tomes brought out his rifle from his car during an argument with his neighbours at a parking lot. He took the rifle and loaded it.
Tomes was said to have paused shooting but before getting back to his car took the rifle again and shot about twelve times as his neighbours took to their heels.
Two men were taken to the hospital for treatment after suffering wounds from the gunshot. One of them shot in the shoulder and the other in the leg and foot.
The suspect, Franklin Laine Tomes, stayed up in his apartment after the shooting before surrendering himself to authorities the following day after the shootings.
