Pennsylvania couple killed in a snow dispute by their neighbor

Photographs of a Pennsylvania couple who were shoveling snow into their neighbor’s yard and killed by him have been taken. The gunman is an engineer and US Navy veteran.

James Goy, 50 and Lisa Goy 48 were both shot to death in Plains Township. They had been involved in a fight with a neighbor.

In the days leading up to the shooting, shocking surveillance footage shows Spaide screaming at Spaide outside of their home. Then he emerges with a handgun and fires several shots leaving them hurt.

Authorities claim Spaide then returned to his house to retrieve an AR-style rifle that he used to kill the couple.

James Goy, 50 (back left), was shot dead in Plains Township (PA) on Monday. He and Lisa Goy were involved in a dispute with their neighbor. Their autistic 15-year old son (middle), survived them.

The gunman’s online obituary revealed that he worked previously as an engineer for the US Navy and the US Army National Guard.

He was a licensed engineer for over 20 years. Most recently, he worked with the Lackawanna River Basin Sewer Authority (PA Department of Environmental Protection).

The obituary didn’t address the cause of his death. It only stated that he had died at home on Monday.

According to the obituary Spaide was not married and doesn’t have any kids. Spaide was described by his family as a ‘loving brother, son and uncle’ who loved running marathons with his family.

His 15-year-old son autistic has survived the murders of his neighbors.

Police say Spaide and his wife got into an argument over clearing snow from their cars, which they then dumped on Spaide’s property across town.

According to local legend, the neighbors have a history. They were involved in an altercation that occurred after a storm only two months ago.

There were no prior incidents between Spaide, Goys or police. Police also didn’t know the identity of the gunman for any other reason.

After getting into an argument over shoveling snow, Spaide and Spaide were seen screaming at Spaide from their outside home.

According to authorities, Spaide had requested that the couple stop shoveling snow onto Spaide’s property before Monday’s dispute broke out. Spaide (pictured in the foreground) was allegedly shouting at Spaide (pictured in his driveway), calling him both a mother ******’, and a ‘p***y.

Authorities claim that Spaide had ordered the pair to stop shoveling snow onto Spaide’s property Monday during the incident.

Surveillance footage shows James putting aside his tool, and walking up to Spaide while he made a fist at Spaide.

Spaide was called a mother ******” by the Goys.

Spaide could be seen retreating inside his house while James screamed at him: ‘I will knock your a**out’ and I’ll turn your life into a living hell’

Spaide was seen stepping out of his home with a pistol in hand.

Lisa shouted, “Go ahead!” Go ahead!’.

Spaide fired several more shots before finally hitting the couple. James could be heard screaming as his wife collapsed on a street corner.

He returned to his house, where he found an AR-15-style rifle. This was the weapon he used in his execution of his neighbors.

Before he pulled out the trigger, he could have been heard telling Lisa: “You should keep your mouth shut.”

Prosecutors claimed Spaide went into his house and began to pace in front of the window. He was allegedly found dead by the police officers who arrived at the scene.

DailyMail.com does not release surveillance footage due to its graphic nature.
