A man was arrested after he was accused of fatally shooting another man during an argument in Montgomery County on Saturday, authorities said.
Deputies arrived in the 15000 block of Palmetto Road in the Magnolia Bend subdivision, where they found Hollis Clayton Haley, 43, wounded with a shotgun wound to the chest, authorities said.
He was taken to Conroe Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at around 5 p.m.
Investigators said Haley and Russell Douglas Hubbard, 31, were arguing when Hubbard went inside a residence, retrieved a shotgun and returned outside. He then allegedly fired the shotgun once, striking Haley in the chest.
Hubbard was arrested and charged with murder. He was booked into the Montgomery County Jail. No bail has been set at this time.
I believe this kind of incident happens more in Texas than it does in New Jersey. We're talking about incidents involving normal citizens who decide to use the gun to settle things, as opposed to, say, drug dealers or terrorists.
Do you think the reason is the difference in the laws or the difference in the attitudes? Or, do those things go hand in hand?
