Ricky Allen Kilgore and Melony Shirley

Dallas, GA (CBS46) A man is jailed after police say he shot another man during a dispute over property lines.

The shooting happened around 3 p.m. Monday afternoon at a home on the 8400 block of Dallas Acworth Highway in Dallas.

The Paulding County Sheriff's Office says 62 year-old Ricky Allen Kilgore became involved in a verbal confrontation with two neighbors in a dispute over property lines.

Kilgore went inside his home and grabbed a hammer and began to threaten the two men. He then went back inside the home and retrieved a rifle and fired shots at the men, striking one of them in the leg. That man sustained non life-threatening injuries and is expected to be okay.

One of the men then went to his vehicle, grabbed a gun and began firing shots at Kilgore.

Deputies were able to get the situation under control before obtaining a search warrant for Kilgore's home. Once inside, deputies found an indoor marijuana growing operation.

Kilgore has been charged with aggravated assault and aggravated battery as well as possession and manufacturing marijuana. 

Melony Shirley, 60, was inside Kilgore's home at the time of the incident. She was arrested and charged with manufacturing and possessing marijuana.
