Texas deputy shoots man at complex

The Houston Chronicle

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — Harris County sheriff's deputies shot and wounded one man and deployed a Taser on another after a brawl Tuesday at an apartment complex in northeast Harris County.

A deputy responding to a report of a fight in the parking lot in the 5300 block of Aldine Bender about 6 p.m. shot the man once in the leg after he allegedly pulled a gun and attempted to flee, said sheriff's spokesman Lt. John Martin.

The unidentified man was taken to a hospital, where he is expected to recover, Martin said.

He said another man was stunned with a Taser when he refused to cooperate with deputies trying to clear the scene.

The investigation is ongoing.
