An off-duty deputy constable shoots a man during a confrontation in northwest Harris County. That man later died at a hospital.
The Harris County Precinct 4 deputy constable, who was working as a security guard at the Village in the Woods apartment complex on Lakewood Forest near Grant Road, approached the man at 2:45 a.m.
After the deputy constable determined that he needed to arrest the man, that man resisted and began to fight with the deputy constable.
During the fight, the deputy constable pulled out his weapon and fired two gunshots into the man's midsection.
The man who was shot was taken to Ben Taub General Hospital where he died. The deputy constable was taken to Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital in stable condition with multiple scrapes and an injury to his back.
