DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - An argument over roof shingles Tuesday night ended with murder, according to Dallas police.

DPD officers were called to the home of Ociel Garcia, 38, located in the 1200 block of S. Gilpin Avenue shortly after 6 p.m.  When they arrived, they found the body of another man, Trinidad Salazar with one gunshot wound.

Garcia and Salazar had previously argued over the sale of some roof shingles, according to Salazar’s wife.  She told police that her husband went to Garcia’s house to either take back the shingles or get more money for them.  When he arrived Garcia told him to take the shingles back, but as Salazar loaded the shingles onto his truck, the two men started arguing again.  Police say that’s when Garcia pulled out a .40 caliber Glock pistol and fired a warning shot into the ground.  Garcia told police he fired the second, fatal shot when Salazar lunged toward him.  Garcia also admitted to police that Salazar did not have a weapon at the time of the shooting.  Garcia’s wife was home at the time and witnessed the shooting.  She dialed 911 to call for help.

Garcia has been arrested and booked for murder.  He is being held on $500,000 bond.
