A Stagecoach, Texas police officer is charged with killing his own brother, who was also a law enforcement officer.

CBS affiliate KHOU reports Robert Lee was booked into the Montogomery County Jail on Friday for killing his brother Rocky Lee, who served as a Harris County Sheriff's deputy.

According to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, the shooting happened at Robert Lee's home in Stagecoach, near Tomball.

Both brothers were off-duty when the shooting happened.

A spokesman says the shooting may be related to some kind of dispute, but didn't elaborate on a motive.

Robert's bond was set at $500,000.

Montgomery County Sheriff's deputies, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office, and the Texas Rangers continue to investigate.
