Violence Escalates at Scenic Loop, SCENIC LOOP, October 20, 2015 - At approximately 1:10 pm on October 20, 2015, a shooting took place at the Stanley Cabins off Scenic Loop. The Stanley Cabins are located at FM-3277 and Little John Avenue. A call was placed to the Polk County Sheriff's Office to report the shooting. According to locals in the area, a feud started between neighbors over a dog that was urinating on the porch of another resident at the Stanley Cabins. One day earlier, things seemed to come to a head when one neighbor (Conrad Peak, 74, of Scenic Loop) allegedly shot Lynn Langley, 37, of Scenic Loop. Witnesses stated that Langley's dog was urinating on Peak's porch. A feud between the two neighbors ensued that culminated in the October 19th shooting when Peak is alleged to have shot Langley with rat shot (causing minor injuries to Langley). Local law enforcement were dispatched to the cabins to investigate. The two men were cuffed and detained for questioning, then released. Fast forward to the next day (at 1:10 pm) and the feud escalated further when Peak, once again, shot Langley during another apparent argument. According to witnesses, this time Peak had a .38 special handgun and shot Langley in the abdomen. Deputies and detectives from the Polk County Sheriff's Office arrived on the scene along with a District Attorney Investigator and a State Trooper. Langley was transported by ambulance to a landing zone on FM-2457 where a PHi Air Medical Helicopter landed and transported him to Conroe Regional Medical Center with serious injuries. Peak was transported to Polk County Jail and, pending an investigation, may be facing charges.
