(CMR) A Pennsylvania man shot and killed his neighbors and then killed himself in a snow-removal dispute on Monday after a major storm dumped more than 30 inches of snow in parts of the United States.
Jeffrey Spaide fatally shot his neighbors, James Goy and his wife, Lisa Goy, before killing himself on West Bergh Street in Plains Township, about 15 miles southwest of Scranton.
Officers who responded to a report of shots fired found the couple's bodies on the street. They later heard a gun fired from Spaide’s house. He was found with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Surveillance video revealed that Spaide and the Goys were involved in disputes before the deadly encounter.
Viewer discretion is advised for the video below.
The Goys are seen in the video removing snow from their parking spots and pushing in across the street, where they dumped it onto Spaide's property.
The couple then got into an argument with Spaide, who asked that they not throw the snow on his property.
James Goy threatened Spaide, who then went inside his home and returned with a pistol.
Spaide opened fire and shot the Goys before returning to his home to get a bigger gun. He returned and shot the already wounded couple, forcing persons who had come to their assistance to flee.
District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis said the office determined no other suspects were involved and deemed the incident a murder-suicide. The case was to be closed pending a report by the Luzerne County Coroner’s Office.
