What started as a routine traffic stop turned into a gunfight that left the victim wounded, lying on the pavement of a parking lot on Uvalde. He had been shot several times by Houston Police, who said that he exited the car they had stopped, brandishing a gun.
The incident occurred last Thursday, Sept. 5 about 4:00 pm on Uvalde between Holly Park and Woodforest.
Officials report that the man, who has not been identified, was wanted by the Harris County Sheriff’s office for aggravated assault. This may have been the reason for the traffic stop.
Police said that in the car with the man were two women and a child, none of whom were injured in the shooting, but reportedly traumatized by the unexpected events.
