Garbage-can dispute leads to shooting in Bayview

An armed man accused of kicking over garbage cans on a Bayview street was shot by a neighbor following a confrontation Tuesday night, police said.

Police responded to the shooting call in the 1100 block of Gilman Avenue around 8:40 p.m.

They found a 28-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the chest. He was transported to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.

According to police, the injured man had been walking up the block “kicking over all of the garbage cans on the street.” One neighbor told him to stop it and go home. The man walked back to a house, returned a few minutes later and started “yelling, screaming and grabbing at his waistband” outside the neighbor’s home, police said.

At one point the neighbor’s father, a 62-year-old man, shot the 28-year-old man once in the chest. He then called police.

Police said they found a gun in the injured man’s waistband.

The 62-year-old neighbor was taken into custody. It wasn’t immediately known what charges he may face.
