Judge Sets Accused Shooter's Bond at One Million Dollars
GAINESVILLE - The man accused of shooting his neighbor to death Monday night has been to first appearance, a judge setting his bond at one million dollars.
Randall Smith is accused of shooting his neighbor who he's lived by for a decade...Michael Carreiro and police say there has been a history of dispute between them.
Smith tried to file an injuction against the victim last year...but Judge Robert Groeb denied his request citing lack of evidence for repeat violence.
Sgt. Becky Butscher, Alachua County Sheriff's Office: "typically civil disputes don't rise to the level of a homicide and unfortunately these two people were not able to quell their differences and it's a tragedy that a man has lost his life because of it."
Smith is being charged with second degree murder.
When we spoke to the victim's family off camera...and they say they don't know how to deal with his death.
