Miami neighbors' quarrel over cats ends in gunfire

- An apparent catfight turned into a one-sided gunfight in the Miami area last week.

Ariel Garcia and Ana Perez live right across the hall from Jose Estrada, 70.  They say in the three years they've been neighbors, they've never gotten along.  But that the last straw may have been the fact they've been feeding stray neighborhood cats.

It happened Thursday. They say Estrada has long complained about them Feeding the strays but never guessed it would lead him to pull out a pistol And start firing -- just feet from the couple's front door.

Garcia was recording with his phone as bullets riddled the living room, windows, and walls. 

The couple says he was trying to kill them.

They flagged down police who approached Estrada. He admitted the gun was under his mattress and allowed police to retrieve it. He was promptly arrested and taken to jail.

Now Garcia must post a $10,000 bond and stay away from the couple, even though his home is just feet from theirs.
