Louisville: Muslim Kills 73-year Old Man In Homeowners Meeting Shooting

via Mahmoud Yousef Hindi Charged With Killing David Merritt In Homeowners Meeting Shooting.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A Louisville man accused of opening fire at a homeowners association meeting, killing one and critically wounding another, was ordered held on a $1 million bond Saturday at an initial court hearing where a prosecutor called him “the epitome of danger to the community.”

A not guilty plea was entered on behalf of 55-year-old Mahmoud Yousef Hindi to charges of murder, assault and wanton endangerment in the Thursday evening shooting at a church.

Dressed in a blue jail outfit, Hindi showed no emotion and did not speak as he stood before a judge.

Afterward, defense attorney Todd Lewis called the case a “horrendous tragedy” and said the Hindi family’s thoughts were with the victims’ families. Lewis asked for patience in unraveling the case.

“We look forward to our day in court,” he told reporters. “There’s always another side to things.”

What specifically sparked the attack wasn’t clear.

Police say Hindi, a doctor educated in Jordan, had a history of disputes with the homeowners group revolving around a fence that the association said didn’t meet its height or design requirements in the upscale neighborhood of Spring Creek.

The association’s attorney says the organization brought the zoning violation charges to the city. Hindi wrote several letters to the attorney, expressing anger and contempt for the attorney.

In one letter that ranted about several neighbors, Hindi cited the Quran, the theory of creationism, the idea that America has gone to Communism, threatens to form his own homeowners association and accused neighbors of stealing his “no trespassing signs” in the dispute over the fence.

“You would not believe some of the crap he wrote in these letters,” said Mark Wagner, a former president of the homeowners association. “It was rambling stuff.”

Wagner, who used to live near Hindi, said his predecessor as association president resigned from the post and abruptly moved from the neighborhood after having property-line disputes with Hindi.

“They were so scared of him that they moved,” Wagner said in a phone interview. “They dumped their house. They sold it to the first person who looked at their house … to get away from this guy.”

Police say Hindi was at the homeowners meeting for a short time before he started shooting. Some of the several people in attendance detained him until police arrived. Police did not immediately release other details such as what sort of weapon was used.

Slain was 73-year-old David Merritt, a one-time association president, who was shot once in the head and died at the scene, according to a deputy coroner.

The wounded man, whose name was not immediately released, was in critical condition Saturday at University of Louisville Hospital.

Barbara Pass, who lives down the street from Hindi, said people were intimidated by him.

“He threatened people, he would say things like, `You know I’ve got a gun and I just might use it.'”

Two of Hindi’s brothers and one of his sons watched the brief arraignment via closed-circuit television in another room. They declined comment as they left the local jail where the hearing was held.

“The family is in a state of shock and disbelief as to what has happened,” said Khalid Kahloon, another attorney representing Hindi. “This is a … peace-loving, law-abiding family enjoying their American dream, and then it’s shattered by this unfortunate and very tragic incident.”

His attorneys asked the judge for a much lower bond. Kahloon called him a “complex man” who “is not a danger to the community in the sense that this crime is not a random, violent crime.”

Kahloon cited another neighbor’s favorable comments about Hindi. The neighbor, Marty Swiergosz, told The Courier-Journal that he got along well with Hindi and Hindi’s family.

“It’s real complex because they were nothing but good to me,” Swiergosz said of the Hindi family. “They’d give us stuff out of their garden. He always wanted to feed our dogs. That was 98 percent of the time.”

Swiergosz described Hindi as a “passionate man,” but told the Louisville newspaper that he wouldn’t repeat some things Hindi had said.

Prosecutor Joe Martz objected to lowering the bond.

“He is the epitome of danger to the community,” Martz said at the arraignment.

The judge kept the bond at $1 million and set a pre-trial hearing for Sept. 14.

Hindi is a Jordanian-American citizen who worked in nuclear medicine, Kahloon said.


LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – New details are coming out about a deadly shooting inside an east Louisville homeowners association meeting.

It happened Thursday night at the Springdale Community Church. One man was killed and another is clinging to life.

Mahmoud Yousef Hindi, 55, is behind bars. Louisville Metro Police say Hindi did confess to the shootings.

A man who was at the Spring Creek Homeowners Association meeting, who did not want to be identified for safety reasons, tells WAVE 3 he saw Hindi right before he walked into the church. He said he noticed Hindi paused before going in, looked up at sky, and touched his forehead. He said it appeared to be a prayer.

A man who was inside the meeting and witnessed everything tells WAVE 3, the board wasn’t even discussing Hindi’s property when he stood up and shot board president 73-year-old Dave Meritt. He then shot another board member before a retired LMPD officer was able to take him down.

  1. Well,well. The muzzie explodes. What’s new? All muzzies are a ticking time bomb. Americans will see no peace now that this filth has entered our lands. The ONLY answer is internment and mass deportation. Don’t be fooled if they hold high positions in society. Never, ever mistake a muzzie to be a friend or allow a muzzie doc to treat you. The Quran calls for them to NEVER take you as a friend and to either convert you or kill you.

    Here’s another case of a good American dead and another murdering muzzie scum to support for 30 years in jail with tax dollars.

    • You are right about the moslemite explodes concept. I wonder if its origin is the unresolvable conflict between authoritarian education (koran, et. al.) and freedom here in the U.S. These folks just cannot handle the rerality they are NOT in charge of the United States like their imams suggest.

  2. This is now prevelent in the U S A following the crap that the MUZZIES
    are doing all over the world. One way to stop this is to enact a law that anybody doing this type of act, to be treated as a terrorist and turned over to the Military for judication with the DEATH PENALITY for the sentence. No more jail nor feeding these slim bags!!! LOCK AND LOAD.

  3. About ten years ago, I had an Iraqi mooslime family living across the street from me. When neighbor’s bar-b-qued pork ribs, they would call the cops! They never mowed their lawn, would have loud prayre meetings in the house, with their visitor’s parking on my front lawn! So I put huge rocks along the curbing. They would still attempt to drive up on my lawn until their cars got hung up on th rocks! Then they would call the cops and complain! At night, they would stand out in the street leaning against their cars and harrass cars driving by. Particularly black folks. One day I came home and all their furniture was out on the front lawn. They had quit paying rent on this section 8 house and had been evicted! I held a party that night! Later, the city came to inspect the house and said the interior was trashed, with slam fist holes in the walls, statement written in arabic on the walls, all the plumbing smashed, and all the copper removed. My county taxes paid for all of this shit. So I say FUCK ISLAM, IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN and particularly, SAUDIARABIA! God Bless America on 9/11~

    • I can’t help thinking-believing these imams are telling their followers they can do anything they want in the U.S.! Since an imam can be anybody so long as they are male, there is no way of complaining to anyone about this. What you wanna bet another COLONIST family is moved in and the whole thing starts again. I pray God it doesn’t happen. The folks who can do something about this don’t live anywhere near you, I bet. So its no skin off their nose.

  4. The epitome of danger is the Socialists in the Democratic Party who are bringing the Muslim terrorists to the USA to build their voter base among them, knowing that they are social misfits and are calling for the killing of US soldiers because of the indoctrination they are exposed to in the masques in the countries where they come from and covering up for them, which took place when one of their Muslim terrorist voter base killed 13 and wounded 31 fellow American soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas. The Socialists in the Democratic Party voter building scheme in the USA makes them accomplices to this Muslim social misfit killing and wounding US citizens.

  6. How can all these foreign doctors get licensed here?? It seems all the medical personell here in Florida are foreigners who barely speak English. If I am to be treated by a Muslim doctor I say NO Way ! How many infidels have been murdered by islamic doctors with no one knowing.

    • From a friend whose sons are ‘doctors’ students can practice on a limited basis when they are ‘supervised’. This until they take the boards. Maybe the same for internationals. Would have to query the A.M.A. for more info.
      I too, share your frustration at not understanding what the doctor says. More than that, I don’t speak textbook English so how do I know what he is thinking.

    • You can buy it there. I can assist you with getting a MD from Kabul! Just get out your laser printer, and make one! We should call these people sons of Obama.

  7. I used to have moslem neighbors, and that’s how I woke up. They favor using the Arabic language, so you never know what they’re saying to their friends when you’re nearby. That’s not very friendly and extremely suspicious. Then they can act SO sweet and all later on. How are you, how are you they always make a big deal of saying. I don’t trust anyone who follows the moon g_d

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
