WEST PALM BEACH (CBSMiami/AP) – A dispute over dog poop led to deadly stabbing with a machete and police involved shooting in West Palm Beach.
Zulma Sepulveda, who lived near 46-year-old Amado Lago and 60-year-old Mauro Londono in suburban West Palm Beach, said the two neighbors had recently been fighting over Londono’s dog leaving waste in Lago’s yard. She says the two previously fought over a similar incident eight months ago.
Lago reportedly stabbed, and killed, Londono and cut a woman with a machete Wednesday night.
Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw says deputies repeatedly told Lago to drop the machete, but that he refused. When Lago lunged at a deputy attending to Londono’s body, Bradshaw said another deputy shot and killed him.
