HOUSTON -

A Clear Lake-area doctor charged with murdering his neighbor has surrendered to police.

Karl Edward Hormann III, an optometrist who lives in Taylor Lake Village, posted $30,000 bail Monday night.

He was indicted last week for murder following the shooting death of his neighbor in May of 2013.

Officials say Brandon Smith, 36, was shot and killed in a public street in the early morning hours of May 26.

Hormann claimed on a 911 tape he acted in self defense.
