A Louisiana man who said he shot a neighbor over loud music who was found guilty of attempted murder


A jury in Louisiana last week convicted a man who claimed he shot his neighbor in 2019 because he was tired of listening to loud music.

72-year-old Thomas Kennedy was reportedly found guilty of attempted second degree murder on Wednesday.

Kennedy went to his neighbor’s house with a .45-caliber Judge revolver in April 2019 and shot the neighbor at close range, reported FOX 8 from New Orleans.

“I was fed up with the music,” Kennedy told investigators after calling the police to report the shooting. “I took the gun and held it out to him. I let him know I wasn’t playing with him.”

The neighbor survived the shooting and was taken to a hospital.

And while Kennedy said the situation escalated quickly after he decided to go over it, prosecutors said he showed little emotion after the shooting.

Thomas Kennedy, 72, faces up to 50 years in prison.

“The defendant laughed in the interview after he had shot his neighbor,” said the deputy district attorney Jason Chatagnier, according to the broadcaster. “He’s kidding. He’s calm … no emotions, no worries about the victim. “

He added, “The defendant’s finger was on the trigger with the gun in the victim’s mouth. That wasn’t negligence, it was attempted murder.”
