Possible drive-by shooting suspect killed after firing at deputies in north Harris County, HCSO says



HOUSTON – An investigation is underway after Harris County sheriff’s deputies said a man possibly involved in a drive-by shooting was fatally shot after firing at deputies in north Harris County Monday.

Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said deputies responded to reports of a drive-by shooting in the 11100 block of Cora at around 3:20 a.m.

When authorities arrived at the scene, Precinct 1 deputies located the possible suspect driving a vehicle and a short pursuit ensued, Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez said the suspect crashed at Veterans Memorial and Sam Houston Tollway. The suspect then got out of the vehicle and fled on foot while firing toward deputies, HCSO said. Gonzalez said deputies fired back at the suspect and shot him. He was pronounced dead at the scene, HCSO said.

Gonzalez said no deputies were injured during the incident.

An ongoing investigation is underway. Check back here for more updates.
