HARRIS COUNTY DEPUTY INVOLVED SHOOTING

Shortly after noon Cy-Fair EMS was dispatched to a mental patient in the 20400 block of Shiloh Mist in far west Harris County. When they arrived they were unable to handle the patient and called the Harris County Sheriff’s Office for back-up.

The first deputy arrived and got into a scuffle with the patient. As soon as he could he got to his radio and called for back-up.

A second deputy arrived at the scene and assisted. The patient was tased several times without any effect. The officers were then forced to shoot him.  The male in his 40’s is dead at the scene. The deputy has been transported to the hospital with a concussion.

Additional details and video shortly.
