Police: Man, 62, Killed Neighbor Who Called Him a Harasser

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Police say a 62-year-old man fatally shot a neighbor after the younger man punched him in the face and told him to stop harassing a woman who lived in the same apartment building.

Charging documents filed by Frederick city police say Richard Harriday had been knocking on the woman’s door and loudly demanding to speak with her before 28-year-old Zachary Winters intervened Wednesday night.

Police say Harriday responded to the punch by leaving the building, retrieving a handgun from his nearby garage, returning to the apartment building and shooting Winters once in the chest.

The Frederick News-Post (http://bit.ly/2lD875T ) reports that a judge ordered Harriday held without bail on Thursday.

Assistant Public Defender Karri Ridgeway says Harriday contests the allegations and intends to fight the charges.
