A Canyon Country man was shot and killed early Saturday in an argument with his next-door neighbor, sheriff’s deputies said.  The victim has been identified as Anthony Davis.  The suspect, Lenny Tracey, has been booked for murder and is being on a million dollar bail.

On Nov. 14, 2008, victim Davis was convicted in San Fernando Superior Court of making a criminal threat against a family member. It was a plea bargain down from two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of battery, stemming from an August 2008 incident in which he hit his adult daughter and struck his wife with his car in the front yard of their Calypso Lane home. Neither woman sustained serious injuries.

However, on Aug. 18, 2008, Tracey’s wife filed a temporary restraining order against him for domestic violence. It was not prosecuted.

Public records show Anthony J. Davis and Cindy J. Davis own a house in the 27900 block of Calypso Lane. Records show the neighboring house is owned by Sandra Lee Tracey, 64, with Lennie Paul Tracey, age 52, living at the same address.

Court records show Lennie Tracey’s only criminal history in Los Angeles County was a DUI conviction in 1997.

A Canyon Country man was shot and killed early Saturday in an argument with his next-door neighbor, sheriff’s deputies said.  The victim has been identified as Anthony Davis.  The suspect, Lenny Tracey, has been booked for murder and is being on a million dollar bail.

On Nov. 14, 2008, victim Davis was convicted in San Fernando Superior Court of making a criminal threat against a family member. It was a plea bargain down from two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of battery, stemming from an August 2008 incident in which he hit his adult daughter and struck his wife with his car in the front yard of their Calypso Lane home. Neither woman sustained serious injuries.

Public records show Anthony J. Davis and Cindy J. Davis own a house in the 27900 block of Calypso Lane. Records show the neighboring house is owned by Sandra Lee Tracey, 64, with Lennie Paul Tracey, age 52, living at the same address.

Court records show Lennie Tracey’s only criminal history in Los Angeles County was a DUI conviction in 1997.

Detectives determined the victim walked over to his neighbor’s house in the 27900 block of Calypso Lane at 3 a.m. to pursue an ongoing dispute.  An argument ensued and the neighbor allegedly shot the victim once in the upper torso, deputies said.

The neighbor is the only suspect and is being held for questioning. No arrest was made as of Saturday mid-afternoon.

The nature of the dispute, and the names of the victim and suspect, have not been released. Both men were described as 51-year-old white males.

A homicide detective initially said the victim was found lying on the ground outside of his own house. That became unclear amid the release of additional information Saturday. Further details are expected later today.

Lt. Dave Coleman said numerous 911 callers reported the incident to the SCV Sheriff’s Station. Local deputies responded to calls of an assault with a deadly weapon and arrived to find the victim lying on the ground with a gunshot wound, Coleman said. Paramedics pronounced the victim dead at the scene.

Calypso Lane is located off of Ermine Street in an otherwise quiet, tree-lined neighborhood of single-family homes.

Coleman said there were no apparent eyewitnesses to the shooting and did not say how the suspect was identified.

He said the victim lived with his wife and other family members. It was not immediately known if they were home at the time of the shooting.
