EUGENE, Ore. -- A deadly shooting spree in Eugene on Wednesday began with a dispute over leaves, neighbors and other eyewitnesses said.

Police have identified the shooter as 66-year-old Carlos Alberto Angelo.

Neighbors told reporters that Angelo lived in a small pink house with his mother. They said Angelo was upset because a neighbor across the street was blowing leaves onto his property.

The dispute happened outside of residences in the 1900-block of Anthony Way.

After Angelo shot three people, neighbors said he returned to the porch of his house and killed himself.

The victims were a 70-year-old woman, a 44-year-old man and a 27-year-old man, police said.

At least two handguns were recovered at the scene.

One neighbor who wanted to remain anonymous said he was at home watching TV when he heard a loud pop that he thought was a leaf blower backfiring.

He said he went back to watching TV, but then he heard people shouting. He went to look out his back room window and saw a man lying on the ground next to a leaf blower, and another man with a gun pointed at another man and a woman. He called 911 and then heard what he thinks was another shot.

He looked out his window again and saw the woman on the ground, and the two men were gone.

At that point, he said he moved to the other side of his house to take shelter.

"If you have problems like that with your neighbors, consider moving, consider taking a different attitude, do something. Don't go out and shoot them," said the man.
