GALVESTON — A grand jury could be asked to decide whether a fatal shooting was a crime or an act of self-defense, authorities said Wednesday.

Kevin Spell, 47, shot Marshall Provost, 23, about 3 p.m. Saturday after Provost was ordered off the property in the 500 block of 43rd Street, Galveston police Lt. Michael Gray said. No charges were filed.

An ambulance took Provost to the University of Texas Medical Branch, where he died Saturday night after suffering two gunshot wounds, one to the abdomen and another to the leg. His death was ruled a homicide, said John Florence, a spokesman for the Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office.
