Three Houston men were shot, including the neighbor who sparked the "unprovoked" triple shooting, in the Westgreen Park subdivision, deputies say.

"Came over to the residence and got into some kind of disturbance, and a shooting resulted from that," Wright said.

Police said they are seeking charges against the suspect for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Investigators did not say what the argument was about.
