A Santa Clarita man shot his next door neighbor to death after the two got into an argument early this morning, according to sheriff's homicide detectives.

The 51-year-old victim walked over to his next door neighbor's house around the 3 a.m. to complain about some ongoing dispute. The neighbor shot the 51-year-old man in the torso, and firefighters pronounced him dead at the scene.

This all happened on the 27900 block Calypso Lane in Canyon County just off Whites Canyon Road. Detectives haven't released the names of the two men or what they were arguing about, but the neighbor is in custody of the sheriff's department.
