92-year-old Floridian fires on neighbor after rejection

A 92-year-old woman fired a pistol at her neighbor after he refused a kiss March 23, according to the New York Daily News.

MSNBC reported that after arguing with her 53-year-old neighbor, Dwight Bettner, Helen Staudinger of St. Petersburg, Fla. retrieved her semi-automatic and fired four shots into his house.

The New York Daily News reported that Bettner, who was on the phone when a bullet shattered a window, did chores like taking out the trash for his elderly neighbor.

Staudinger was arrested on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and shooting into a dwelling the day after, MSNBC said. Her court date is set for Tuesday.
