Cops: 73-year-old man shoots neighbor in dispute

Posted: Updated:

ANSONIA, Conn. (AP) - A 73-year-old Connecticut man will be appearing before a state judge after being charged with shooting his neighbor three times during an argument on Easter morning.

Steven Sentementes of Ansonia is expected to be arraigned Monday in Derby Superior Court on charges including first-degree assault, burglary, reckless endangerment and unlawful discharge of a firearm. He's detained on $500,000 bail.

Officials say the victim is recovering from gunshot wounds to both his legs and his buttocks area.

Police say Sentementes barged into his neighbor's home shortly after 9 a.m. Sunday, argued with him and shot him. Details of the dispute haven't been released.

It's not clear if Sentementes has a lawyer.
