    An Alabama man is charged with murder in the shooting deaths of his mother and a neighbor after a dispute over loud music at the mother’s birthday party in July.

    WRBL-TV reports that Leon Cannon was arrested Friday following the shootings July 24 in Macon County

    Cannon’s mother, Paula Dumas, was having a birthday party, investigators said, when neighbor Clifford Henderson came over complaining about the music’s volume.

    In an ensuing confrontation, Cannon fired a gun, hitting Dumas and Henderson. Dumas died at a hospital, while Henderson died at the house.

    Macon County Sheriff Andre Brunson wouldn’t say if Cannon shot his mother by accident or if Henderson had a gun.

    Cannon was arrested Friday in Opelika and taken to jail in Tuskegee. Officers also searched his house.

    It’s unclear if Cannon has a lawyer representing him or whether bail has been set.
