Taylor police said man shot to death by neighbor over free firewood dispute

Police in Taylor said an argument over free firewood led to one man killing his neighbor in front of the victim's teenage son.

According to Taylor Police, the shooting happened Tuesday night and a 73-year-old man was taken into custody. Police told FOX 2 that the shooting happened after a dispute over free firewood but not release more details.
