That is the question Montgomery County Sheriff's Office will try to solve after a man was found dead friday morning. It happened in the 4800 block of Neches in South Montgomery County.

When deputies arrived they found 43 year old Jeffery Keith Phillips of New Caney dead from a gunshot wound to the chest.

The victim's 23 year old estranged girlfriend, told deputies that Phillips had come to her home while she was away. A Protective Order had been issued against Phillips earlier that month. She says she shot him once in the chest after he refused to leave her home.

The circumstance of the shooting is still under investigation.
