Who Was Daniel Berry From York PA?
Daniel Berry was a man who shot and murdered his neighbor before killing himself on Saturday in Spring Garden Township, according to the York County coroner.
Berry, 59, was the gunman, according to the coroner. Around 6:15 p.m., a gunshot occurred in the 400 block of Hill Street.
Berry, according to neighbor Lynn, was new to the area, having moved into his apartment in November and caring for his mother. "He'd been in a squabble with the municipality over building a shed and tearing down his garage, and he'd been irritated and in his impatience."

"I assume he wasn't that sort of guy," a neighbor speculated.
During the unfortunate incident, Berry met Walker in the backyard, where he initiated a verbal confrontation that resulted in the shooting. One of the neighbors, Lynn, who watched footage of the event on a doorbell camera, says.
Lynn and Walker were close, with their children having playdates and extended text threads between them and another neighbor.
Walker's death is mourned by everyone in the school and the community. Flowers adorned Walker's front door, and a bouquet adorned her orange Jeep.
