East Texas Man Shot And Killed By Neighbor

An East Texas man, authorities believe shot and killed his neighbor, is not facing any charges right now.

It happened around 8:30 Thursday night in Wood County just west of Mineola, on County Road 2231.

The Wood County Sheriff's Department tells us Stephen Young was shot in the chest in front of his neighbor's mobile home.  

They are checking to see if the recently passed "Castle Doctrine" applies in this case. The castle doctrine allows Texans to defend themselves with deadly force in their homes, cars and workplaces.
