Dispute between Phoenix neighbors turns deadly

Updated:
PHOENIX -

A 41-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly shot and killed his neighbor during an argument on Friday.

Police say Nicholas Oakes admitted to shooting and killing his neighbor before barricading himself inside his home near 52nd Street and Thomas.

This was reportedly not the first time the men had been in a fight.

Three schools were on lockdown before Oakes barricaded himself in the home.

Police say Oakes was arrested after negotiating with him for hours.

He faces first degree murder charges.

The neighbor's name has not been released because officers are still trying to contact his family.
