Washington County sheriff's detectives were trying Friday to unravel the genesis of a fatal shooting that occurred when an armed elderly Leeds man confronted and was shot to death at his neighbor's home.
Deputies and paramedics rushed to the southwestern Utah hamlet at 8:16 p.m. Thursday after gunfire was reported near Silverado Circle. There, they found 70-year-old Stephen Aizenberg dead from a gunshot wound.
Chief Deputy Shauna Jones said witnesses told detectives that Aizenberg, armed with a handgun, had walked from his house to his neighbor's residence. He then entered the neighbor's driveway, pointing the gun at the home's occupants.
