Rider Shot and Killed

Montgomery County Deputy Kills Man After Police Chase in Kingwood

A deputy shot and killed a man Monday after a motorcycle chase and a struggle in Kingwood.

At around 1:30 p.m., police said, a Montgomery County Precinct 4 deputy stationed near Humble ran the license plate of a passing motorcyclist. The license plate came back invalid but the driver didn’t pull over, according to police.

A chase ensued. The suspect got away, but a second deputy spotted him, police said. After the suspect crashed, police said the second deputy followed him on foot to a car wash on Kingwood Drive, where he shot and killed the man after the suspect attempted to carjack a private citizen and struggled with police.

Bobby Dobbins, assistant chief of the Houston Police Department, held a press conference Monday to discuss the incident. Although the shooting involved a Montgomery County deputy, it happened in Harris County and was being investigated by Houston authorities, Dobbins said.

Dobbins said a citizen at the car wash was “at risk” and that, while the deputy used his Taser on the suspect, the Taser had “no effect.” The deputy only fired his pistol after seeing the suspect reach for a gun, Dobbins said.

“[It was] a really bad, tragic incident, but it could have got a lot worse,” he said. “There were numerous witnesses to this event. There’s also video."

In a news release Tuesday, Houston police said the male suspect, whose name and age haven’t been released, was pronounced dead the scene. The news release doesn’t name either deputy, nor does it confirm the suspect had a gun.

Although both the press conference and the news release reference the suspect having a gun, it remains unclear whether that detail has been corroborated. “It’s still an active investigation,” said police spokesman Victor Senties. “This is the information our homicide guys were provided.”

Montgomery County Precinct 4 couldn’t be reached for comment Tuesday. Bryan Carlisle, captain of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, said the incident was being handled by Houston police and that he had no additional information to share.
