Montgomery man shot, killed

An argument between neighbors ended with gunfire Sunday night, leaving one man dead and another with questions to answer.

The shooting occurred around 9:30 p.m. in the 4000 block of Pamela Way in Old Oak Estates, located off Texas 105 near Montgomery.

The deceased was identified as 43-year-old Dennis Clark.

Lt. Dan Norris, of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, said deputies arrived to find Clark was shot once in the abdomen while on a neighbor’s property.

“The shooting incident occurred after Dennis Clark went to a neighbor’s home, where an argument escalated from verbal to physical,” Norris said. “The homeowner told investigators that Dennis Clark had been told repeatedly to leave, and when Dennis Clark came toward the homeowner in an aggressive manner, the homeowner shot Clark one time.”

Clark was transported to Conroe Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Steve Kelley, who lives next door to the home where the shooting occurred, said he was surprised Monday morning when he heard about the shooting from his daughter-in-law, who also lives nearby.

“We didn’t hear anything,” Kelley said.

He and his wife, Joyce, knew of Clark, but did not know him personally.
Homes in the subdivision are scattered on large pieces of land in what Kelley says is a quiet neighborhood.

No charges have been filed against the homeowner, and the MCSO has not released his name.
