POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Polk County deputies have arrested a man accused of shooting another man twice two days in a row over the victim's dog urinating and defecating in the man's yard.

A feud between Conrad Peak and his neighbor began Monday and continued Tuesday. The shooting has left Peak in jail and the other in the hospital.

Nosy neighbors might have been the most Newman's Cabin residents in Livingston had to worry about up until Monday around six when resident Lynn Langley took his dog for a walk.  

"It's been a pretty good place until now," said David Whitehead, the victim's neighbor. 

"Our dog supposedly urinated on the man's porch, beside the porch actually," said Becky Langley, Lynn Langley's wife.  

"He was walking his dog by the cabin, and the dog peed on the yellow pole," Whitehead said.  

The pole is feet away from 74-year-old Conrad Peak's home.  

"I looked over, and he shot him in the head with a .22 rat shot," Whitehead said.  

According to authorities, Peak said Langley had pushed him to the ground and over the hood of Peak's vehicle, which prompted Peak to get a .22-caliber pistol with a round of rat shot from his pocket and to shoot Langley in the face.

Neighbors said they only saw Peak shooting. 

Polk County Sheriff's deputies said both men were questioned and later released. 

"That was the first time," Langley said. 

"They booked him in and sent him home for him to turn around and do it again the next night," Whitehead said. 

Langley left and investigators later found him and said Langley only had minor injuries. Hammack said Langley did not want to press charges on Peak. Hammack said that case will be reviewed by a grand jury. 

Things hadn't even cooled down in the cabins before deputies had to make a u-turn. 

"Next thing I know, I hear a gunshot," Langley said.  "I hear oh my God, Lynn's been shot again!"

Not even 24 hours later, Peak shot Langley again. this time, in his torso with a .38 caliber pistol. 

"He was right behind my cabin laying down with blood all over," Langley said. 

Witnesses said he ran and collapsed until a CHI Air Medical Helicopter flew him to Conroe Regional Medical Center with serious injuries.  

"He shot my husband the first chance he got, Langley said. 

Neighbors said though Peak Never liked dogs, this is just out of his character. 

"He's been a good guy. We bring him food, and he's just been a good guy," Whitehead said. 

"I would have never thought in a million years a man would be so violent," Langley said. 

Conrad Peak, 74, is charged with aggravated assault.

Peak is being held on a $10,000 bond.
