Indianapolis Firefighter Shoots Neighbor In Self-Defense

posted on July 7, 2017

The Hatfields and McCoys have nothing on the Weigles and Kellers. The two neighbors have feuded for years, according to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office. And their last dispute on June 27 ended in gunfire.

The showdown was captured on Dean Keller’s security camera, which shows 59-year-old Jeffrey Weigle walking to a fence line and yelling demeaning remarks at Keller and his wife. Keller, 49, returns the insult as Weigle rides off on a lawn mower. Seconds later, Weigle backs up the mower and pulls a handgun. Keller then fires several shots, which hit Weigle before he begins returning fire. The video ends with Weigle walking away.

“Given the aggression shown by Weigle, it was reasonable for Keller to believe deadly force was necessary,” said Johnson County Prosecutor Brad Cooper. No charges will be filed against Keller, who has argued with Weigle since 2009 over a variety of issues. Keller was uninjured, and the police report stated that Weigle suffered a chest wound.
