A knife-wielding man was fatally wounded by two officers who opened fire on him as police said he held his ex-wife hostage in a southeast Houston apartment Friday.

The unidentified man was shot shortly after 5:45 p.m at the Wesley Square apartment complex at 7402 Calhoun. Neighbors at the complex had called police after hearing a dispute at the residence, said Officer Gabe Ortiz, a Houston Police Department spokesman.
