An approximately year-old conflict between neighbors led to the arrest of a Pahrump man.
As stated in a Nye County Sheriff’s Office video news release, deputies responded to the 2700 block of East Dapple Street at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, May 8 for a report of shots fired.
Upon arriving, deputies discovered that the resident, identified as Joseph Cavalieri, 41, of Pahrump, had allegedly fired numerous rounds into a neighboring home.
“Deputies began to contact the shooter, however, he refused to answer the door,” the release noted. “Negotiations were conducted over a loudspeaker and ultimately the suspect exited the residence.”
Cavalieri was subsequently arrested for discharging a firearm into an occupied structure.
Authorities did not indicate the nature of the longtime dispute Cavalieri had with his neighbor.
No injuries were reported.
