Prosecutors have charged a 60-year-old Glendale man with trying to shoot and kill a neighbor over a noise dispute, officials said.

Douglas McCreery allegedly fired twice during the confrontation. His 33-year-old neighbor, Jared Kurt, was not injured, according to Glendale police reports.

Prosecutors charged McCreery with one felony count of attempted murder. The pair had been living next door to each other for less than a year. McCreery had complained to the police in the past that Kurt was playing loud music and talking loudly, police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said in an e-mail.

“[The] victim always tried to be apologetic,” Lorenz said of Kurt’s response to past noise complaints.
