POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A Polk County judge will issue an arrest warrant for a Livingston man who allegedly shot his neighbor twice in two separate incidents in October of 2015 after he was a no-show for his court hearing Monday.

The two shooting incidents stemmed from a feud between Conrad Peak and the victim that started when the victim's dog urinated and defecated in Peak's yard.

According to the victim's wife, they were taking their dog for a walk when their dog urinated on Peak's porch. When the woman looked over, she saw Peak shoot her husband in the with a .22-caliber rat-shot round.

Polk County Sheriff's Office deputies said Peak claimed the victim pushed him over the hood of his vehicle and onto the ground and that was when he pulled a .22-caliber pistol out of his pocket and shot the victim.

However, neighbors said they only saw Peak shooting.

Peak and the victim were both questioned and released.

The next day, Peak allegedly shot the victim again. This time, he used a .38-caliber pistol to shoot the victim in the chest, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

Witnesses said the victim ran and then collapsed. He was later airlifted by helicopter to the Conroe Regional Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries.

Neighbor said even though Peak never liked dogs, his actions were out of character for him.

Peak was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
