Harris County Sheriff’s Office investigate the scene of a deputy-involved shooting that left one person dead on the 17900 block of Seven Pines Drive Friday, March 16, 2018, in Spring, Texas. Photo: Godofredo A. Vasquez, Houston Chronicle

A Harris County Sheriff's Office deputy shot and killed a man during a physical struggle at a Spring home Friday morning.

The deputy was responding to a call from a neighbor about an argument and possible gunshot she heard next door, in a home in the 17900 block of Seven Pines.

When the man answered his door, he and the deputy got in a physical altercation in the house, said Senior Deputy Thomas Gilliland, spokesman of the sheriff's office. Another neighbor heard the altercation and came to help the deputy.

Sometime during the struggle, the deputy fired his weapon once, fatally wounding the man who lived at the home, Gilliland said.

The neighbor who came to help was also shot in the lower part of the arm, but sheriff's office officials aren't sure if that shot was fired by the deputy or the man involved in the struggle, Gilliland said.

There were weapons inside the home, and investigators will look into what weapons were used and who fired them.

The man who died lived with his wife in the home, Gilliland said. Police had been called once before to the home on a domestic prevention call.

The deputy, a seven-year veteran of the force, was not wounded. He will be placed on a mandatory five-day administrative leave.

The Harris County District Attorney, the Harris County Sheriff's Office Homicide Division and the sheriff's office Internal Affairs Division is investigating.
