Dog Bite Leads to Fatal Shooting

Alex Alejandre

Houston police say a man was fatally shot and two others were wounded after an argument about a dog bite.

Authorities say a man became upset when a dog apparently bit him in the leg at a party.

They say he confronted the dog's owner, 60-year-old Robert Jones, and left the house after the two argued.

Houston police say the man then returned with a gun and killed Jones and wounded two others early Saturday.

One person was treated and released, and the other had surgery for non-life-threatening injuries.

The 38-year-old suspect fled. It's unclear if Houston police had arrested him as of Sunday.
