ST. PETERSBURG — A fight over loud music between two neighbors ended in a 25-year-old man's death on Sunday night.
Police said Lonnie Lee, 34, was arguing with his neighbor, William P. Headlee, over "excessive noise" at the Gateway Apartments, 2000 Gandy Blvd. N, about 7:10 p.m.
A witness told police that Lee punched Headlee, knocking him to the ground, and then shot him twice when he stood up. Lee told police Headlee pushed him first, prompting Lee to shoot him.
Headlee died at the scene.
Lee was arrested late Sunday and charged with second-degree murder. He was taken to the Pinellas County Jail, where he remained Monday morning without bail.
