From another news source, it was discovered that Lacchei was involved in many other altercations with some other neighbors over time. This tragic incident happened on April 12, 2023.

After the incident, medical services and the fire department reached the shooting place and tried life-saving measures on Marty; after some time, police also arrived at the site.

The autopsy report revealed that the victim passed away due to a headshot. This was a homicide incident, as said Law enforcement officials after their initial investigation. Later police obtained a search warrant to check the house of Ettore Lacchei.

Ettore Lacchei shot to death his neighbor over a leaf blower after a violent altercation: 

At the 40700 block of North Black Oak Avenue in unincorporated Antioch, this incident happened on 12 April. According to some other neighbors, most of the time, Lacchei has an altercation with his next-door neighbor because his neighbor always uses a noisy leaf blower in front of his residence.

On the incident day, the altercation turned higher, and Lacchei shot his neighbor. The victim was taken to the hospital, but he was pronounced dead just after some time of the shot.

Ettore Lacchei, 79, angrily approached William Martys, 59, as he cleaned his yard with a leaf blower; the old man took out a gun and shot his neighbor in the head.
“Once again, easy access to firearms has turned a dispute into a deadly crime,” said state’s attorney Eric Rinehart.

In the press release, the statement reads:

“On April 12, 2023, while Martys was utilizing a leaf blower in his yard, he was approached by Lacchei. Lacchei argued with Martys, and during the argument, Lacchei shot Martys in the head.”
