Man dead in shooting after standoff with Houston police
HOUSTON (AP) — Police in Houston say a man is dead after a shooting with police on the city’s west side.
Police Chief Art Acevedo says the man was found dead about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, several hours after the shooting.
The man’s name has not been released.
Acevedo says that shortly before 1 a.m., the man went into a restaurant where he was denied entry on Monday because he was carrying a gun. Acevedo says the man shot and wounded a restaurant employee, then went to game room next door where police found him in an attic.
Acevedo says an officer fired once after hearing a gunshot and the man was not seen again until he was found dead.
Acevedo said it’s not yet known whether the man shot himself or was shot by the officer.
