LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A Louisville man accused of fatally shooting a neighbor and wounding another at a homeowners association meeting has been ordered held on $1 million bond.

Fifty-five-year-old Mahmoud Yousef Hindi pleaded not guilty Saturday to charges of murder, assault and seven counts of wanton endangerment following the Thursday evening shooting.

His attorney asked the judge for a much lower bond. Prosecutor Joe Martz objected calling Hindi "the epitome of danger to the community."

What specifically sparked the attack wasn't clear.

Police say, though, Hindi had a history of disputes with the homeowners group revolving around a fence that the association said didn't meet its height or design requirements in the upscale neighborhood of Spring Creek.

The association's attorney says that last year, Hindi sent a threatening letter about the dispute.
