Chung Kim had lived below Jamie Stafford and Michelle Jackson at the Sable Ridge Apartments in Northeast Dallas for two years when witnesses and police say an ongoing dispute over noise -- the 31-year-old couple had five children -- and dog crap pushed Kim over the edge.

At 8 a.m. Kim, who, according to an arrest affidavit, was angry at the couple over feces he accused them of dumping onto his porch, walked upstairs and shot Jackson as she stood on the porch in front of her home.

Kim, 75, then stepped past Jackson and into the apartment where the couple's one-month-old baby was sleeping and shot at Stafford as he attempted to escape via the back patio.

Stafford made it over the railing and jumped to the ground, but got no further. Kim walked downstairs, stood over Stafford, and shot him at point-blank range before walking to his black Lexus SUV.

Police found him within a few minutes at Abrams and Larmanda, a quarter mile away.

Kim is charged with capital murder. Police say he was taken to a local hospital for an "unrelated medical condition" and has not yet been booked into jail. The couple's children are staying with relatives, Fox 4 reports.

Kim was a real loose cannon! I think spending the rest of his life in prison will help him get rid of his rage!

Think of how pissed off this 75 year old guy was to be pushed to this.  They must've been shitty neighbors.  I've had shitty neighbors but I never shot them.

Good thing Kim had a gun to help settle this disagreement.  

(Of course, if he didn't have a gun, the 75 year-old man probably would have just used a knife or bat to reach a similar settlement with a couple of 31-year-olds.)

Chung Kim didn't take no shit from no one. Clean up after your dogs, folks -- the life you save may be your own.

Kim complained to the HOA on many occasions and they did nothing, and even treating him as the offender.

@observist Yes, but Observist, if the couple and all five of their kids had been armed, the situation would have been nice and tidy. They would have sat down to tea and cucumber sandwiches, because an armed society is a polite society. When are you liberal pansies going to get common sense?!

@observist Or a spoon. Spoons kill tens of thousands every year.

@CogitoErgoSum The tragedy is that, with guns, killing people to settle disputes becomes all too easy. [Now the nasty comments will be hurled at Myrna for stating an opinion]

@ruddski So there you have it.  My news source was correct.  That property has a 14% approval rating by the reviewers on Apartment Ratings and the HOA managers sound horrible.

"Too much dog poo-poo in the property. It doesn't matter if you don't step on the grass where the poo-poo is, because the dogs themselves and/or master and/or just people in general walk on the poo-poo get it on their shoes in turn they walk into the sidewalk, you come around step on the poo-poo then take it into your condo. Get my point? Poo-poo everywhere."

I think we know who wrote this review......

He *IS* the offender now. And don't defend this murderer, asshole. If you cat shits on my patio I'm killing it.

Who is defending him?  I'm adding another fact to the story.  You people all got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.
