Dennis Gibson shot his wife Jaqueline and her boyfriend Vernon Burger outside their home, police said.

A Texas man has been charged with murder after he allegedly shot his wife’s lover in a jealous rage.

Dennis Gibson, 78, is accused of killing his wife’s lover Vernon Burger after catching the pair together at his home in Katy, police said.

Deputies say the alleged boyfriend, 66, was shot in his side and in the back of the head after the love triangle argument.

“We saw two men outside of the house arguing and fighting against each other,” neighbor Shannon Line told

“And then we heard ‘Pow, pow,’ two gunshots. And that’s when we called 911.”

Burger was rushed by helicopter to a hospital after the incident at 8 a.m. Friday, but later died of his injuries.

Detectives confirmed the pair were involved in a romantic relationship.

Gibson also shot his wife Jacqueline twice, but her injuries were not considered life-threatening.Neighbors in the Falcon Point neighborhood were shocked by the incident and said the Gibsons were a quiet family.

“That’s a little scary. It’s hard to believe,” said neighbor Naseem Nouhpisheh, who has known Gibson since she was 10.

“He’s always been a very nice, quiet, considerate man.”

“It’s a little unsettling, because this is such a peaceful neighborhood,” added Cherie Edens.

Gibson has been charged with murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and is being held without bond in the Fort Bend County Jail.
