HOUSTON, TX – It was just like any other home on Friendship at Ojeman in northwest Houston, except what happened at this home wasn’t so friendly. A man in his 40s was found dead after he was shot in the chest.

Houston police say they got the 911 call from his live-in girlfriend. When officers showed up, she told them she had been fighting with her boyfriend and was threatening to move out. As she was packing her stuff, including a shotgun, she says it accidentally went off.

Could it have been a heat of the moment type of thing? Possibly! But it’ll be up to a Harris County grand jury to decide if any charges will be filed.
