A 54-year-old Jefferson Parish man was shot to death early Friday morning after he reportedly began kicking at the front door of his next-door neighbor.

The incident occurred around 1:30 a.m. at an apartment building at 718 Central Avenue.

A witness says the shooter and the victim had been involved in a long-running dispute and he told investigators he tried to stop the victim from continuing to kick his neighbor's door.

The victim suffered a fatal wound to the groin area when the 61-year-old neighor opened his door and fired a single shot.  The man was pronounced dead on the scene.

The shooter was taken into custody for questioning.
