HOUSTON, Tex. — A 39-year-old man who repeatedly "pummeled" the windows of a patrol car with a pipe and then turned aggressively on officers was shot and killed by police in south Houston Saturday night, police said.
The incident at 6627 Foster happened around 8 p.m. after officers responded to a disturbance call from a woman who reported her son had threatened her with a knife, Ortiz said. Family friends said the man was mentally challenged.
