Anthony Davis, 51 [Update]

Anthony Davis, a 51-year-old white man, was shot and killed Saturday, Sept. 24, in the 27900 block of Calypso Lane in Santa Clarita, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Lennie Paul Tracey, a 51-year-old white man, is charged with murdering Davis and assaulting the victim's wife with a shotgun.

A neighborhood feud between the men had recently escalated when Tracey installed infrared lights on his property and pointed them in the direction of Davis' home, authorities say.

Tracey allegedly shot Davis, 51, twice about 3 a.m. after the victim unplugged the lights, according to prosecutors.

After the shooting, Tracey allegedly pointed the gun at the victim’s wife. The two men had apparently argued in the past over the lighting system.

Tracey is being held in lieu of $1.1-million bail. If convicted as charged, Tracey faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Anyone with information about the killing is asked to call the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's homicide bureau at (323) 890-5500. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
