BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA (WKMG) – Jury selection in the double murder trial of a Titusville man accused of shooting three of his neighbors and killing two of them is scheduled to begin Monday.
Police said William Woodward opened fire Labor Day weekend in 2012 because of an ongoing dispute.
Surveillance video captured the moment Titusville police said Woodward fired 31 shots that killed his neighbors, 39-year-old Gary Hembree and 44-year-old Roger Picior.
Police said there was an ongoing dispute between the neighbors. Hembree’s mother told News 6 in September 2012 that Woodward was causing problems.
“He’s been giving him trouble for three weeks and he keeps asking the police for help,” Jeanie Huppert said.
The week before the shooting, Woodward and Hembree were in court trying to get restraining orders against each other. A judge denied the request.
