MARYSVILLE, Calif. (CBS13) – A landlord has been arrested for attempted murder after shooting a tenant repeatedly with a shotgun, authorities said.
Edward Leroy Scott, 57, is being held on $1 million bail after allegedly opening fire after tensions boiled over with a resident in his home.
Neighbors said they heard multiple shots last week and saw tenant Alan Noell stumbling out of the home, bleeding from wounds in the stomach and chest.
Noell said he refused to leave his residence after his landlord demanded he leave, arguing that he had paid his rent until the end of the month. When he stepped outside, Scott allegedly ambushed him from the garage.
“He was extremely lucky,” said neighbor Pat Martin. “He was shot twice, I believe, or three times.”
Police surrounded the home and eventually took the shooter into custody without further incident.
Edward Scott will be arraigned in Yuba County court later this week on a charge of attempted murder.
