A Pacoima man shot a neighbor to death Friday because he thought the victim and his family were too noisy, then fled before he could be arrested, Los Angeles police said. The victim, Sergio Gabriel Morales, lived with his family in a one-room cottage behind a house in the 11200 block of Tamarack Avenue, police said. The suspect, Juan Mancilla, 52, lived in a trailer parked in the same yard and apparently had been upset for some time over noise coming from Morales' cottage, police said.

"We haven't been able to come up with a motive," Lt. Richard Meraz said. "We can't determine if there is direct gang involvement."
