An Annapolis man has been arrested and charged with killing three of his neighbors in a parking dispute. The suspect, identified as John Smith, allegedly shot and killed the victims, all members of the same family, in front of their home on Friday evening.

According to police, the incident began when Smith was angry over a parking dispute with the victims. The altercation escalated quickly, with Smith allegedly pulling out a gun and opening fire on the family members.


The victims, identified as Jane Doe, John Doe, and their son Jack Doe, were all pronounced dead at the scene. Smith was apprehended by police a short time later and charged with three counts of first-degree murder.

Neighbors in the area expressed shock and sadness over the tragic incident. “We never expected something like this to happen in our quiet neighborhood,” said one resident. “It’s a tragedy for everyone involved.”

Smith is being held without bail and will appear in court later this week. The investigation into the shooting is ongoing, and police are asking anyone with information to come forward.
