(Scroll down for video) 2 men of Florida, were killed and a woman was injured during a fight between the neighbors over dog feces.
The neighbors had a long history of fighting. However, things took a turn for the worse when one man brought a machete to the fight.
Claudia Morales and her husband Mauro Londono, were arguing with their neighbor, Amado Lago, who lives across the street from them.
Witnesses told police that they were arguing over dog feces. Lago accused the couple of not picking up after their dog.
Lago, 46, suddenly took a machete and stabbed the husband and wife.
The man died of his injuries and the woman, 54, who suffered stab wounds to her arm and head, is being treated at a hospital and is expected to survive.
Police said that when the Palm Beach County sheriffs arrived, Lago lunged at them with the machete. That is when officers shot and killed him.
The incident took place about 8:00 p.m. Police recovered the bloody machete, which was used in the stabbing.
The deputy who killed Lago, is on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure after the use of lethal force.
