Houston police say a months-long dispute between two men is the reason for a fatal drive-by shooting earlier this week in northwest Houston.

According to police, patrol officers responded to a shooting call at 1400 Tarberry about 7:15pm on March 25 and discovered the body of the victim. Witnesses told investigators the victim was walking on Tarberry when a black Ford F-150 pickup truck pulled along side and someone inside the truck shot him.

The deceased male has been identified as Joshua Johnson, 24, who suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was pronounced dead at the scene.

On March 26, police say the 53-year-old male shooter turned himself in. Further investigation determined the shooter and the deceased male had been involved in an eight-month long dispute, according to police. The suspect was not injured in this incident.

The case will be referred to a Harris County Grand Jury.
