Officers responded to a disturbance call at the home in the 900 block of Green Pond Drive and found a 47-year-old man dead at the scene, according to Garland Police Department spokesman Pedro Barineau.

Investigators said the man left the home after a disturbance at about 11 p.m. Thursday. About an hour later, the homeowner received a text message that the man was returning to the home.

Police said the homeowner began watching surveillance video of the exterior of his home. He told police one of the camera feeds was not working, so he took a pistol outside to investigate.

The homeowner told police the man charged at him with an object in his hand. Police said the homeowner then fatally shot the man at about 12:35 a.m.

Police said the homeowner was not injured.

Detectives said they are still investigating and have not yet made any arrests.
