COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A man suspected of killing his neighbor after a dispute over a dog is expected in court Friday morning for an arraignment.
The deadly shooting happened near UCCS in Colorado Springs back in March. Colorado Springs police say 53-year-old James Hanlon turned himself in two days later in the Denver area.
It happened in a neighborhood along Rimwood Drive. It's just northwest of N. Union Boulevard and Austin Bluffs Parkway. That's where authorities found the body of Gary Dolce.
"Very friendly," the neighbor said of the victim. "Always waves, said hello when he was walking his dog and everything. It's just scary in a while situation, this is a quiet neighborhood and everybody is friendly. If somebody was targeting him, that's just scary all around."
According to an arrest affidavit obtained by 11 News partner The Gazette, Dolce filmed the entire incident on a phone. An AMR medical tech found the phone lying next to Dolce's body still recording. The medical tech picked the phone up, stopped the recording and played the video back, giving him a glimpse of what had just happened.
The arrest affidavit goes on to state the video shows a blue SUV pulling up to Dolce before an argument started.
"You're stupid," Hanlon says, and Dolce replies, "Say again?"
Hanlon repeats himself, then points a black handgun at Dolce and fires multiple times, the affidavit says. Hanlon is wearing blue disposable gloves.
Dolce falls to the ground and is heard yelling, "Oh my God!" over and over, the affidavit says. The handgun again comes into view and more shots are fired — off-screen this time, because the phone had fallen to the ground.
