A young man reportedly shot in a fight over a barking dog only became a father eight months ago.
Jesse Herridge, 25, died on Monday afternoon at 5 p.m. as a result of a chest wound outside his home in Parkes in the central west of NSW.
According to police, Mr. Herridge was shot from close range with an unregistered rifle from his 18-year-old neighbor Nathan Price.
Jesse Herridge, 25, became a father for baby Lyla with his partner Stephanie Leonard, just eight months before he was shot in a fight over a barking dog
His daughter Lyla was born in October when his partner Stephanie Leonard was photographed while holding the newborn in the hospital.
Friends and family mourned Mr. Herridge in the days after his death and expressed their dismay at the & # 39; trivial & # 39; nature of the alleged dispute.
& # 39; Waste of life about something so meaningless and trivial & # 39 ;, said Alicia Jain, sister of Herridge.
& # 39; My brother has lost his life … at that time. I still can't get it, it's sad. It made me beat … just a tragedy all round for the families involved. & # 39;

Mrs. Jain said she was happy that she had left the town with her daughter and moved to another part of the regional NSW.
& # 39; I suppose you never know, wherever you are, what can happen in a fraction of a second, & # 39; she said.
A family friend wrote on social media: & # 39; I feel sorry for his child. RIP mate, gone but never forgotten. & # 39;
Herridge was found injured off Porter Street and ran critically to Parkes Hospital, but doctors couldn't save his life.
Price was arrested shortly after the shooting and was confronted with murder and several firearm charges.
& # 39; I don't think they were good friends, they knew each other, they lived in the same street & # 39 ;, said NSW Chief Inspector Chris Taylor.
& # 39; From what the witnesses told us, it was the dogs of the victim. They were the ones who were barking.

& # 39; The victim took a number of actions to cause the accused to armed himself with an unregistered rifle. & # 39;
Witnesses told the police that Mr. Herridge armed himself with an ax grip before allegedly being shot with the unlicensed firearm.
Chief Inspector Taylor added that the incident was an & # 39; incredible tragedy & # 39; and that both the victim's families and the accused were & # 39; devastated & # 39 ;.
Price appeared on Tuesday in the local court of Parkes, where he did not demand bail and was held in pre-trial detention until August 19.
