Robert Lee, a Stagecoach Police Department officer who had served for 35 years, was arrested after killing his brother, a Harris County Sheriff’s deputy.


According to Chron, the shooting took place in Robert’s house, located in Stagecoach Farms, Magnolia, Texas. Robert called 911 to report that he had shot somebody who broke into his home around 5:30 pm on May 25, 2018.

When the police arrived at the scene, they noticed that the person Robert had killed was 57-year-old Rocky Lee, his brother. Apart from that, it wasn’t clear if Rocky had actually broken in the house.

Montgomery County Sheriff's Office spokesman Scott Spencer revealed that even though the exact circumstances of the shooting were under investigation, they didn’t believe there was a burglary at the house.


After the shooting took place, paramedics treated Robert for high blood pressure at the scene and he was then held overnight. Despite the fact that he killed a law enforcement officer – which is normally a capital crime – he was not charged with capital murder.

The reason was that Rocky was not acting in his official duty at the time, so it was just like Robert killed a common person. Robert’s reaction when he was told that he killed his brother was not revealed.

Robert’s conversation to 911 was recorded by the police scanner audio. In it, he said that he shot five rounds into a ‘young man’ who broke into his home and that he couldn’t locate him.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez took to Twitter to point out that Rocky ‘proudly’ served the country for many years and asked his followers to keep him and his family in their prayers.

The Montgomery County District Attorney's Office and the Texas Rangers are also investigating the circumstances of the case. The last information that the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Twitter account made public about the case was that Robert had been arrested for murder.
