GLASGOW VILLAGE, Mo. (AP) — A St. Louis County man is dead after a shooting that his fiancée blames on a dispute over grass clippings.

Allen Waller of Glasgow Village was killed Sunday in the driveway of his home. His fiancée, who did not want to be identified, told KTVI-TV that Waller was killed over a long-standing dispute with the people who mow the neighbor’s yard. Waller felt they left grass debris on his side of the driveway, and he wanted the neighbors to clean it up.

Doorbell camera video shows men coming to Waller’s home and he asks them, “Did you cut the grass?” Moments later multiple shots are heard.
