Former Houston officer indicted in neighbor’s shooting

HOUSTON (AP) — A former Houston police officer has been indicted in the off-duty shooting of a neighbor after an argument over a dog.

A Harris County grand jury on Friday indicted Jason Loosmore on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The indictment alleges Loosmore was not in uniform but had his badge hanging around his neck during the Oct. 13, 2016, incident.

The indictment alleges Loosmore shot Casey Brown three times. A statement from the Harris County District Attorney’s Office says Brown, who was unarmed, is still recovering from his wounds.

Loosmore, who is 32, resigned shortly after the shooting. He didn’t respond to an email from The Associated Press.
