Here's Video of a 70-Year-Old Miami Man Shooting at Neighbors for Feeding Stray Cats
Stray cats overrun Miami like pigeons in New York or rats in Chicago. Except, you know, cats are cute, and some people can't help but feed the feral felines, often to the chagrin of their neighbors. It's a common quarrel, but one that usually doesn't end in gunfire.
Then again, this is Miami, and apparently any disagreement sends bullets flying.
Husband and wife
Garcia told police that Estrada began yelling at them about the cats, and then, while the two men were standing in the doorways to their respective apartments, Estrada pulled out a pistol and began firing. Garcia took out his cell phone and caught the encounter on video.
Luckily, no one was harmed, but Garcia and Perez's living room was left riddled with bullet holes.
The victims flagged down a police officer, who confronted Estrada. He admitted to pulling the trigger and showed the officer the gun, which had been stored under his mattress.
Estrada was arrested on charges of first-degree attempted murder. His bond was set at $10,000, and he's been ordered to stay away from Garcia and Perez. He'll remain under house arrest until he goes to trial.
