Deputies said the alleged shooter heard his dogs barking and went outside to find the neighbor on some construction machinery.
When he asked him what he was doing, the neighbor told him to “mind his business.”
“The victim then barrels the golf cart into the shooter’s gate. The shooter is standing behind the gate at that point, and the gate hits the shooter at which time the shooter fired multiple shots striking the victim,” HCSO Sgt. Sidney Miller said.
The homeowner tried performing CPR, but when paramedics arrived the other man was pronounced dead.
Deputies tell KPRC 2 he is cooperating with them as they continue to investigate.
