A police officer shoots an armed man who refused to follow instructions in West Houston.  It happened in the Rama Apartments near Bissonnet and the Beltway.


Investigators say the unnamed man pointed his gun at HPD responders and was shot by Officer J. Medina, who has been on the force for about a year.  Medina was reassigned to desk duty during the investigation.


The suspect was taken to Ben Taub Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds, but none are life threatening.
