Police: Property line dispute erupts in deadly shooting

Associated Press

TOLEDO, Ohio -- An Ohio man who authorities say shot and killed a 75-year-old man during a dispute about a property line has been charged with aggravated murder and murder.

Forty-nine-year-old Christopher Krauzer was indicted Wednesday in the Sept. 5 fatal shooting of Gordon Capshaw, who owned a rental property next door to Krauzer in Toledo.

Toledo police said the shooting occurred during an argument about the property line while Krauzer installed a privacy fence. Police said the two men had previously argued about the fence and other matters.

Police said Krauzer was holding a rifle when officers arrived but eventually surrendered.

Court records don't list an attorney for Krauzer, who is being held on a $1 million bond.
