Family members tell Action News the shooting was the result of an ongoing feud with neighbors. "Two or three weeks ago, they had pulled out a gun. They pulled out a gun, we called the police, they didn't do nothing cause they didn't find nothing. This is what they wanted. This is what they got," said Anita Contreras, one of the victim's relatives.
