WARDSBORO, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say a Wardsboro man told them he shot and killed his neighbor after the neighbor pointed a gun at him during an altercation.

The Brattleboro Reformer (https://bit.ly/2f9WunI ) reports that Sgt. Richard Holden said in a search warrant issued after the Oct. 18 incident that 57-year-old Kevin Parker told authorities he and 42-year-old Kirby Staib had been having issues concerning “property boundaries.”

Police say Parker told them he shot Kirby after the two got into a verbal argument and Kirby pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and pointed it at him. Parker told investigators he thought Staib fired at him first but was uncertain.

Staib was found dead on the lawn of another neighbor’s home.

Charges haven’t been filed against Parker. Police say the investigation is ongoing.
