Man shot outside Garland home following disturbance

- A Garland homeowner told police he shot and killed a man early Friday morning.

The shooting happened around 12:30 a.m. in the 900 block of Green Pond Drive, which is near the President George Bush Turnpike and Highway 78.

Police said a 47-year-old man went to the house and caused a disturbance. The 58-year-old homeowner asked him to leave, but he came back a few hours later.

The homeowner said he knew he was on his way back because he got a text from a friend. He started monitoring his security cameras and then noticed one of the cameras go black.

He said he grabbed a handgun and went outside to investigate. The suspect allegedly threatened him and he said he feared for his life so he fired shots.

Police did find the wires of a surveillance camera cut, but said there was no weapon on the suspect’s body.

Police are still investigating and questioned the homeowner, but have not arrested him. They said it appears to be a case of self-defense.

Details about the men’s relationship and initial argument are still unclear.
