PHILADELPHIA – Authorities say a man is charged with murder after fatally shooting his neighbor in a dispute about dog waste.
CBS Philadelphia reports the incident began when 47-year-old Franklin Santana confronted Tyrik Harris after Harris’ dog defecated in his yard.

Police say Harris, 27, was carrying a gun. When the argument turned physical, there was a struggle and gun shots were fired, killing Santana.

According to investigators, Santana was shot at least three times in the head and neck. He leaves behind a young baby.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey called the incident a “senseless tragedy.”

“Those kinds of things just have to stop … that just makes no sense at all. I understand that supposedly there was some struggle, but multiple shots were fired here and multiple shots is not accidental,” Ramsey said.
