May 5, 2014 shooting  Attorney: 'Hillbilly hell,' not deer feeding, led to New Brighton shooting ... Minneapolis Star Tribune  The May 2014 shooting occurred after Damerow-Cleven ran into the Zumberges' son, Jacob, at a restaurant. She called police on the son, who was wanted for a previous incident in which he allegedly threatened to kill Damerow-Cleven and Stevens. Neal Zumberge didn’t shoot and kill his New Brighton neighbor last year over the man’s long-standing habit of feeding deer. Rather, Zumberge’s attorney said Wednesday, he shot Todd Stevens because of the “hillbilly hell” his family endured for years living across the street from Stevens, an inveterate drinker who fought with his father and the entire Zumberge family. Zumberge, 58, acted in self-defense and in defense of his wife, Paula Zumberge, when he fired a 12-gauge semiautomatic shotgun at Stevens and Damerow-Cleven from his yard across the street on May 5, 2014.
