Disaster struck a community after a local pastor was fatally shot by his neighbor over an argument.

Nick Davi, 46, a pastor at Grace Point Church in North Las Vegas, was shot and killed in his driveway during an alleged dispute with his neighbor Joe Junio, 36.

According to court documents obtained, the incident occurred on Dec. 29, 2023. Junio confronted the pastor and his family in front of his home after the pastor made complaints about her to their homeowners’ association.

According to the New York Post, Junio shot Davi in the abdomen. She then turned the gun on his wife, Sarah, striking her as well, while the couple’s two children watched from inside a nearby car. One of Davi’s children captured the shooting with their phone.

Junio was later arrested and charged with Open Murder with a deadly weapon, Attempted murder, Battery, Child Abuse/Neglect, and discharging a gun/weapon where a person might be endangered.

According to the Police, weeks before the shooting, Junio had been threatening the couple, which led them to call the police twice because she had allegedly thrown rocks and feces on their property. The couple had also accused the suspect of flooding their home, and they filed for a restraining order.

Sarah, who survived the shooting, filed a lawsuit on Jan. 19 seeking a jury to award an unspecified amount for damages. In addition to general damages, the lawsuit seeks damages for medical expenses, lost earnings, grief, sorrow, loss of probable support, companionship, society, comfort, consortium, and damages for pain, suffering, or disfigurement.

The lawsuit stated that Junio did not legally possess the gun she shot the couple with. The lawsuit did not, however, name who the firearm’s owner might be.

While the homeowner’s association is not listed on the lawsuit, it alleged that the association knew or should have known that the suspect would likely perform violent actions against the couple.

Junio is set to appear in North Las Vegas Justice Court for a preliminary hearing in the criminal case on March 4.

Pastor Ty Neal of Grace Point Church shared an emotional message during a recent memorial service.

“We lost a brother. We lost a pastor, and we lost a friend,” Neal told the congregation. “It doesn’t feel real. It just feels like this is a bad dream in which we will wake up and Nick will be there.”
