Florida Man, 78, Accused of Killing Neighbor

A 78-year-old man in Florida has been accused of killing his neighbor in DeLeon Springs. According to the Volusia Sheriff’s Office, the incident occurred on Sunday evening when the victim, identified as Brian Ford, was trimming trees over his property line on Alameda Drive. The suspect, Edward Druzolowski, allegedly confronted Ford about being on his property and threatened to shoot him. When Ford did not leave, Druzolowski followed through with his threat and shot him.

Deputies responded to the scene after receiving two 911 calls reporting the shooting. Ford was pronounced dead at the scene. Druzolowski was subsequently arrested and booked into the Volusia County jail on a charge of second-degree murder.

The motive behind the shooting remains unclear, and the investigation is ongoing. Druzolowski is currently being held without bond and is scheduled to make his first appearance in court on Monday afternoon. The Volusia Sheriff’s Office continues to gather more details and updates will be provided as the story develops.
