SWAT SCENE ENDS IN NORTHWEST HARRIS COUNTY

Around midnight a DPS Trooper attempted to stop a driver with no lights and just flashers on near Glen Loch. A pursuit started, and the man ended up in a new subdivision, Fairway Farms, off Huffsmith Cemetery Road near FM 2978. He went to a model home and entered the garage near the intersection of Loblolly Court and Pinyon Hill Trail. It is not known where he acquired the automatic opener. As he exited the vehicle he showed a gun at which time shots were fired by Precinct 4 deputies and DPS. It was not known at the time if he was hit. Harris County Sheriff’s Department SWAT was activated as a perimeter was set around the home. A DPS helicopter watched the rear as it was too easy to end up in a crossfire if officers entered the backyard of the house. SWAT arrived and breached the front door with the ram on the Bearkat. A robot was then sent to the garage to gain access. Once the robot did, it broke the car windows and found the male unresponsive. However, just prior to that the suspect had been on the phone with negotiators several times. Gas was put into the garage and still no response. They then attempted to use rubber bullets which got his attention and gave up. He said he did not want to go back to jail as he had been jailed prior on family violence. As the scene unfolded family members were on the scene with deputies.
