79 Year Old Man Arrested After Shooting Neighbor In The Head During Argument


A 79 year old Illinois man has been charged with two counts of murder after fatally shooting his neighbor earlier this month.

On April 25 officers arrested Ettore Lacchei from his home on the 40700 block of North Black Oak Avenue without incident.

Lacchei is accused of fatally shooting his 59 year old neighbor, William Martys, on April 12.

Apparently, Martys was outside using his leaf blower, in his own yard when him and Lacchei began to argue.

Lacchei then pulled out a handgun and shot Martys on the head.

Emergency crews responded and transported Martys to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

While at the scene authorities recovered the weapon they believe was used in the fatal shooting. They also spoke with neighbors that said this was not the two men’s first encounter and it wasn’t the first time they saw Lacchei pull out a weapon.

Lacchei remains in Lake County Jail.


  1. All this gun shooting is republican party mess from a sale out the American people but accepting nra money for the campaign nothing wrong with having a gun the problem is license to kill in open carry since this open carry law yook place 6years ago killing go out of control 99%of killing come from open gun law stand your grand vote every republican out of office that taking nra funds

  2. This is so sad. Why did thay wait this long to take him in to custody. That man lost his life that day not a week or 2 down the line. They talked to the neighbors and was told that the old man has pulled a gun before in a argument. This is so f***ing crazy. A life lost over something that could’ve been prevented. This law that was put in play for open carry is so wrong we are losing more lives to this stupid a** law. There’s racist all over and stupid people everywhere and ready to take the lives of anybody just because and that’s sad. This open carry law needs to be relooked at and canceled point blank period. How many more lives is this law going to take? It’s going to have to be something with gun violence that takes the lives of someone that help put this law in place and that’s so fucking sick for one of there family members to lose there life in order for them to see this law wasn’t call for in the first place. God forbid for something like this to happen. These law makers aren’t feeling the pain of losing a loved one to this stupid law. You can’t knock on the wrong door, drive up to the wrong driveway without somebody taking the law into there on hand these days but what do I know huh smfh
