PLOVDIV, Bulgaria -- A 61-year-old Bulgarian killed two of his neighbors recently after finding a bag of garbage outside his home in Plovdiv, police allege.

Police say the man, identified only as G.M., confessed to shooting one of his neighbors and assaulting the victim's mother after finding the bag of garbage outside his apartment, the Sofia News Agency reported Wednesday.

The 51-year-old woman, who was hit in the head by a firearm during the attack, suffered fatal cranial injuries while falling to the ground, police said.

The woman's 27-year-old son died after allegedly being shot by the suspect, who police now have in custody.

Police allege the neighbors had been arguing with each other for the last two years and the bag of garbage clearly represented the last straw for G.M.

A blood sample was taken from the man to support police allegations that G.M. had been drunk at the time of the attack, the agency reported.
