BREAKING NEWS-OFFICER INVOLVED DISCHARGE OF WEAPON AT WOODLANDS MALL

About an hour ago Montgomery County deputies were converging on The Woodlands Mall in an attempt to capture a male with a stolen credit card. The male attempted to use the card at at least two businesses in the mall. Mall security was alerted and observed the suspect keeping deputies updated on his moves.

The suspect exited the mall through Sears and into the parking lot where he got into a black Jaguar X16. A mall security unit attempted to block him. The suspect then ran into the security vehicle as deputies arrived.

A deputy fired a single shot through the windshield not striking the suspect who was taken into custody.

Detectives remain on the scene as are members of the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office.

Additional details as available.

    Looks to me that the shot fired was well placed, if you observe the bullet hole in the windshield. The last time I was at the Woodlands Mall I saw the security vehicles, and they are compact cars. If someone uses a vehicle as a weapon, they can have deadly force used against them…my understanding.

    Well this is media and stories are never 100%…. but then till your an officer and stand first hand stop armchair quarterbacking what happen. There was only a lot of vehicles in the area… Thank you.

    So a deputy fired shots in the parking lot of from the looks of it, a very crowded mall…missing his target in the process?

    Happy we aren’t hearing about someone being killed because of wayward bullet.

    Don’t see the need for deadly force in this one..was the suspect armed?

    I understand the car hit a security vehicle…not an officer.

    Again, just making comments based on what I am reading.
