CHULA VISTA, Calif. -- A man suspected of blasting his neighbor with a shotgun in what appears to be anger over a loud lawnmower repair effort turned himself in Sunday, Chula Vista police said.
Arnulfo Luis Flores, 66, surrendered to San Diego police at 9:30 a.m. after a two-day manhunt in which he was considered armed and dangerous. He was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, according to Chula Vista police.
Flores allegedly used a shotgun to silence a noisy lawnmower-repair effort shortly before 8 p.m. Friday at a residence in the 300 block of Beech Avenue, police said.
Flores went to the victim's residence to complain about the noise as the victim and his relative tried to repair the machine. Apparently unable to reduce the racket, Flores went home to get his gun, returned and then fired two blasts at close range, police said.
The type of ammunition in the gun was not released by Chula Vista police, but the victim was taken to a hospital in stable condition with injuries that were not believed to be life threatening.
