Houston Police Officer Fired On Armed Man

Officials say a Houston police officer shot a suspect who allegedly threatened an off-duty officer with a gun.

According to police, the off-duty officer arrived at a night club on Webster near Bastrop -- south of downtown Houston -- around 1:30am Saturday. As he got out of the car, a man walked up to him and flashed his weapon.

We're told the officer warned the suspect he is a Houston police officer, but the suspect allegedly showed him his gun one more time.

That's when the officer drove to a nearby police substation and came back with a few uniformed officers. They found the suspect still there on the scene.

Uniformed officers reportedly approached the suspect who again brandished his weapon, officials said.
