Authorities say a 65-year-old woman was shot and killed Tuesday afternoon during a what police called a "neighborhood dispute" turned barricade situation.

Robert Shinn, the victim's husband of 37-years, said police were called to the house on Monday after he said the couple and Pulver had a confrontation.

"He told us we stole his iPad. And, went on some kind of rant. Wanted to fight me. He pushed her," Robert told FOX 29's Steve Keeley. 

Pulver has been charged with murder and weapons crimes.
