HPD officers arrived at the residence to locate a wanted fugitive. Upon officers’ arrival, they surrounded the residence, knocked, and announced their presence as, “Houston Police." Officers were met by several family members who would not confirm whether the suspect was inside the home. Officers searched the interior of the home for the suspect, which included a dark attic area. During their search, an HPD officer located the suspect hiding behind loose insulation in the attic. The suspect was within close proximity of the officer and suddenly raised his left arm. Fearing for his safety and the safety of the other officers, the officer discharged his duty weapon one time striking the suspect in the arm. The suspect was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries and was released the same day.
