Houston Police officers were dispatched to a welfare check because a suspect was armed and was reported to have cut himself. Upon arrival, patrol officers made contact with a family member of the suspect who stated he was suffering from a psychological crisis. Officers located the suspect hiding behind bushes in the backyard of the residence. At the time of his discovery, the suspect had no clothing on and was armed with a handgun. Officers made multiple attempts to convince the suspect to drop his weapon but he refused to comply and raised the handgun towards the officers. One of the officers, in fear of his life, fired one time striking and killing the suspect.
