The suspect is being charged with attempted murder but that could change to murder if the victim passes away.
The suspect then told police he was heading home, where he was later arrested by authorities on suspicion of attempted murder.
Neighbors said the dispute over this has been going on for a while.
The condition of the 46-year-old victim is unknown at this time.
