HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -

A man is charged after a deadly shooting at a football watch party Sunday.

Investigators told Local 2 Carl Beard, 26, got into a fight with his girlfriend outside his step-brother's home on Rambling Brook in north Harris County.

Deputies said the girlfriend came into the home crying after the fight, so the homeowner went outside to confront Beard.

The two men then began fighting.

Witnesses said the homeowner, John Clyde Lancey, 32, came back into the home to get a gun from the safe.

Investigators said Lancey then took the gun back outside and told Beard to leave.

When he refused, deputies said Lancey shot Beard in the chest, killing him.

Lancey is charged with murder.
