ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Police say a North Texas homeowner collapsed and died after fatally shooting a man during an argument in his garage.

Arlington police on Thursday said investigators believe the men knew each other.

Police say 54-year-old David Stephenson was with his wife in their garage Wednesday night when 24-year-old Destrey Tinner approached and an altercation broke out.

Officers responded to what a dispatch log indicated was a burglary-in-progress call. Police found Tinner with a gunshot wound to the chest. He died at a hospital.

Stephenson was speaking with officers when he began to show medical distress and collapsed. He died at a hospital. No cause of death was immediately released.

A medical examiner identified Tinner as being from Amarillo, but police say he recently lived in Arlington.
