A Texas homeowner who allegedly believed that his house was fired upon, fatally shot a 19-year-old man who was part of the group creating the “disturbance” in the Houston area – but the police later found paintball splatter on the scene, and are allegedly now not sure if anyone besides the homeowner had a real gun.

Houston Police Department Sgt. Joshua Horn said the residents in the Houston home “were warned for a kind of disruption” — with more than a dozen people — and at one point “believed” the members of the group began to shoot.

“They believed that they were that their house was shot at,” Horn said KHOU. “The homeowner, the father, came out to the disturbance, approached a suspect who was here. He believed that he was a threat, out of fear for his safety, fired one round at him.”

The father also allegedly fired rounds at the vehicle, which belonged to the 19-year-old, who was rushed to a hospital and later pronounced dead.

Horn said the homeowner’s 17-year-old son might have is the objective of the group.
