A man is shot and killed after an argument last night near Lake Wichita Park.        

Wichita Falls Police responded to a home in the 4700 block of Karla, just off Fairway, after a man called 911 to report he had shot someone.

Police Spokesperson Sgt. Joe Snyder says when officers arrived on the scene around 6:45 Thursday night, they found 32-year-old Rocky Joe Buckley outside the home on the ground.

He was taken to United Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead of a gunshot wound in the torso.

The man at the home told police Buckley came to the house to confront him about an ongoing disagreement, and he began to fear for his safety.

He told officers the man charged at him and he shot him. Police are not releasing the shooter's name, but Snyder says all witnesses and those involved have been interviewed.

No arrest has been made at this time.

Police are treating this case as a murder and it remains under investigation.
