VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A Clark County, Washington, man has been found dead and a woman was seriously wounded in what was described as a neighborhood dispute turned violent.

The Columbian reports (http://is.gd/BQ22ph ) that 59-year-old John Kendall was found dead Friday, apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot, near an intersection in Vancouver’s Blandford Canyon.

In a phone interview, sheriff’s Sgt. Fred Nieman declined to confirm whether Kendall’s gunshot was self-inflicted. He said police did shoot and injure another person in the area. He said it’s not clear why that person was in the area or whether he had any connection to Kendall. That person was taken to a hospital.

Nieman said no officers were hurt.

Kendall was wanted in connection with the shooting of his neighbor, 33-year-old Abigail Mounce, in a car Friday morning. The newspaper says her husband described her as being in stable condition Friday night at a Vancouver hospital. The hospital earlier described her as critically injured.

The Columbian reported that Mounce and her husband had sued Kendall for renting rooms in his five-bedroom home in violation of neighborhood covenants. Kendall had been due to appear in court Friday.
