LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Prosecutors say they are going to seek the death penalty for a Kentucky man accused of killing two men at a homeowners association meeting.

Mahmoud Yousef Hindi has been charged with two counts of murder and seven counts of wanton endangerment. Police say he shot the men after long-running disputes with neighbors over the size and location of a fence and a driveway.

In a videotaped police interview released by prosecutors, Hindi says after he shot the men, he told onlookers he wasn't going to hurt anyone else and asked them to call police.

Hindi has declared that he has no money and he has been assigned a public defender, who declined to comment Friday.
