LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Police have arrested 54-year-old Anthony Jecker for shooting and killing another man at an apartment complex on Fegenbush Lane.
According to police, around 3 p.m. Jecker and his landlord got into an argument outside an apartment.
They say the altercation then led to the suspect pulling out a gun and shooting the other man.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
Neighbors and police both tell us that the apartment complex here on Norbrook drive and Fegenbush Lane is in a family friendly neighborhood, and this is very out of the ordinary.
“Someone decided to do something that, obviously, killed someone else and could have put a lot of people in danger.” LMPD spokesperson Dwight Mitchell said, “thankfully that was not the case, but unfortunately there was one person who did die from this.”
Neighbors say Jecker does live in the apartment complex with his wife and a dog.
They say his wife left in a police car.
Jecker is charged with murder and tampering with physical evidence

My prayers go out to this landlord and his family. Although at this time, the media has not released the name of the landllord who was killed by his own tenant, this is real life about how dangerous people are in today’s world. Even Mayberry, USA is not safe.
This should be a huge wake-up call to all rental property owners in how you communicate and treat your tenants. Odds are, this landlord was working his butt off to build for true financial freedom with his wife and family.
Please remember this landlord’s family in your thoughts and prayers.
