What happened:

He made a noise complaint to the police, who arrived, but they did not issue a citation before leaving. Smith said shortly after, Ladner came pounding at his front door.

“So I opened the door,” said Smith. “As soon as I opened the door, he grabbed me and just started beating the hell out of me.”

He said, “I was fearing for my life."

Smith did not say what happened afterward. He and his attorney said the shooting was self-defense.

"This happened on Larry and Lori Smith's property at night,” said Glass.
