Houston police say they shot and killed a man who was apparently firing multiple gunshot rounds around his family’s home on the east side early this morning.
Chief Art Acevedo said his officers were called to the 7900 block of Chadwick around 12:45 a.m. after reports the suspect was firing a weapon from the front of his residence.
According to police, the suspect’s stepfather was home, but was afraid to go outside. He told police the gunman had anger and drug issues.
HPD says no officers or other civilians were injured. The man's name was not immediately released.
This is the third deadly officer-involved shooting in our area in less than a week.
