Bell County, Texas, resident David Risner has been charged with capital murder of a police officer. He has been accused of killing Little River-Academy Police Chief Lee Dixon Thursday night in Bell County.

Dixon was shot by a shotgun on the left side of his face, Little River-Academy Mayor Ronnie White told the Austin American-Statesman.

White said Dixon had filled out a partial police report about a disturbance involving Risner when he went to Risner's house to interview him. The disturbance occurred when Risner was driving behind a tractor and pulled around to pass it, White said. Risner nearly struck another car head-on, White said.

The person in the other car confronted Risner and then went to Dixon's office and talked to Dixon about it, said White.
