Jesus Take The Wheel: Bronx Man Kills His Neighbor For Complaining About Noise Keeping His Kids Awake

- By Bossip Staff

This is a damned shame.

A Bronx man has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a neighbor who asked him to quiet down so his kids could sleep, police said Monday.

Santo Silva, 57, has not yet been formally charged because he is being treated at Lincoln Hospital for chest pains.

Police said Silva had been drinking when David Morales, 30, confronted him early Sunday to ask him to pipe down so his kids could get some sleep, police and relatives said.

Before he was slain, Morales called across the street to the home of his nephew Louie Garcia, 41, to complain about the neighbor’s 5 a.m. noisemaking.

Moments later, Garcia, who was pals with the loud neighbor, got a second call from Morales – one he will never forget.

“I heard him trying to breathe over the phone – gasping,” a shaken Garcia recalled. “He couldn’t talk.”

Garcia said he hung up and called the landline again. A neighbor answered and said Morales had been shot in the chest.

Garcia and Morales’ cousin Bianca, 17, rushed over to the Vyse Ave. building and found Morales near death outside his room. His puzzled children were still inside.

Bianca dialed 911 and then tried in vain to save Morales’ life.

“He felt very cold and had sweat on his body,” Bianca said. “It felt like a sponge – it wasn’t even stiff. I realized he had taken his last breath.”

While Garcia made a last attempt to revive Morales using cardiopulmonary resuscitation, Bianca went to care for Morales’ boys, David Michael, 8, and Devon, 6.

“They were confused. They didn’t understand what was going on,” Bianca said.
Garcia said the noisy neighbor, who worked as a seaman in his native Panama, fled the scene.

He later returned and gave himself up to police, Garcia said.

What is wrong with people? These poor boys have to grow up without a father because some maniac wanted to be loud and drunk at 5 a.m.???

    So lemme get this straight–this man felt he had the god-given right to be loud enough to wake the dead at 5 in the morning, and then act indignant when confronted about it?

    Go straight to the gas chamber. Do not p.a.s.s go. Do not collect $200.

    This is honestly SAD!!!

  • Theorius Stylez

    I agree with everyone who states that this murderer deserves the death penalty. However, its gonna be difficult to prove premeditation, which is required for a capitol murder case. The DA will definitely look at this case from all angles and bring the strongest charge that will keep this animal away from society for the rest of his natural days.

    @ that damn sh#$ disturber “that’s one thing i noticed about new york. they are loud, smoke weed in the hall and no one says anything about it.”

    No, that’s one thing you notice about da hood. Seek out a new section of the cities you visit. And tragedies like these are in every neck of the woods. Cuz that’s where crazy MFs be..EVERYWHERE. Let’s stop giving excuses to savages who cannot coexist properly with us human beings. You do F-ed up ‘ish like this, then you gotta go. Painfully & Slowly…

    It is time to move when you have to put up with foolishness like this! Unfortunately Mr morales won’t get that chance!

  • gemini62065

    My heart goes out to the family. As sad as it may be, this should be a cautionary tale…you never really know the mental state of the people you live with…and it pays to just be safe and call the police. Times are hard for a lot of people and many are not handling things well at all!

  • Please

    Whats even more messed up and I see this bullchit all the time. Is how a mofo cant seem to understand you live in an rented APT not a HOUSE.

    No one should ever have to go tell anyone to turn it down at 5:00am. Thats why I dont talk any more either. I put them boys (Police) in they life. Talk to them….

    MY CONDOLENCES TO HIS FAMILY.

    THESE SO CALLED “HUMAN BEINGS” THAT DELIBRATELY MAKE NOISE KNOWING THAT THEY ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES THERE MAKE ME SICK. THESE ANIMALS DO NOT BELONG ANYWHERE NEAR CIVILIZED HUMANS THEY BELONG IN THE WHERE THEY CAN MAKE NOISE AND RUN A MUCK WHEREVER THEY PLEASE.

    I NOTICED THAT THIS PROBLEM IS LIMITED TO BLACKS AND HISPANICS AND THIS IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS WHY I DESPISE BLACKS AND HISPANICS AND I HOPE THAT THE POLICE CONTINUE TO DO RACIAL PROFILING AND ARREST EVERY BLACK AND HISPANIC PERSON THEY SEE.

  • TIRED OF STUPID MINORITIES.

    THEY BELONG IN THE ZOO*

  • Well Alright....

    This is crazy! But, if anyone have every spent some time in any part of NYC, you would know how loud it is 24/7. That’s because not only does everyone crank their music loud, but they also can’t have a conversation without shouting.
