The preliminary hearing of a Colorado man accused of fatally shooting a 21-year-old woman revealed new details about the June incident.

On Monday, authorities said that Michael Close, 24, fired 24 shots at victim Isabella Thallas and her boyfriend as they walked their dog outside his apartment.

Investigators said that Close yelled at the pair from the window over their pet pooping in his garden: “Are you going to train that dog or just yell at it?”
