Neighbors told KTCT-TC that the couple and their two teenage sons had moved into the duplex in northeast Dallas just months ago.
They also said the cat recently went missing and the wife posted signs around the neighborhood but eventually returned.
‘A man got shot over a cat? It’s kind of crazy. It’s unbelievable,’ neighbor Carl Phillips told the local station.
‘A man loses his life over a cat. I mean, people love their pets, but it ain’t that serious… to die for a cat,’ he added.
