Neighbor shoots neighbor in dispute at Treasure Island apartment complex

TREASURE ISLAND — An ongoing disputed between neighbors at an apartment complex ended in a shooting that wounded a 35-year-old man early Monday, police said.

Jeremy S. Millspaugh was taken to Bayfront Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the pelvis after police found him about 1 a.m. at an apartment complex at 11105 1st Street E on the Isle of Palms.

Nathan McDonald, 33, said Millspaugh, his next-door neighbor, charged at him with a 4-inch knife and threatened other residents when McDonald asked him and another man to leave.

McDonald then shot Millspaugh with a .38-caliber handgun. McDonald said he asked the two men to leave because he thought they were involved in drug dealing.

Police called the shooting self defense. No one was arrested.

McDonald said he and Millspaugh got into a fist fight about a month ago and it's been tense between them since. He planned to move out Monday after two years at the complex. "It's not the neighborhood, I just have to get away from him," McDonald said of Millspaugh.

Millspaugh has a history of arrests in Pinellas county since 2008, largely on charges of domestic battery, according to jail records.
