HARRIS COUNTY, TX - Just hours after Houston officers launched an investigation into one apparent love triangle-gone-wrong, deputies were called to the scene of a similar crime in northwest Harris County.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office got a call about a disturbance around 12 a.m. Wednesday. When they got to the home in the Canyon Creek neighborhood, they found a man dead in the front yard.
Investigators say a woman and her boyfriend were staying in the home, when her boyfriend heard something outside.
"[When the boyfriend] went out to investigate what was making the noise, the ex-boyfriend came at him with a brick and the new boyfriend shot him," explained Sgt. Robert Spurgeon.
At this point, investigators say it looks like the shooting was self-defense.
