Woman shoots, kills neighbor during argument over dogs, police say

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — Police said a 24-year-old woman was shot and killed after an argument with her neighbor over their dogs.

The shooting happened at an apartment complex on Stonecrest Trail near the Mall of Stonecrest Friday morning.

The shooter is 28-year-old Amanda Longmire, who lives in the complex, according to investigators.


DeKalb County police spokeswoman Sheira Campbell said there has been an ongoing dispute over aggressive behavior between the two dogs.

Friday morning, it escalated into a physical argument. Longmire then pulled out a gun and shot the 24-year-old woman in the chest, police said. The victim fell onto the breezeway pavement and died.

"It's a nice neighborhood. I didn't think something like this would ever happen over a dog. That don't make no sense," neighbor Curtis Good said.

Longmire has been charged with murder.
