A police officer shot and killed a man wielding a hammer Sunday after fellow officers' attempts to subdue him with a Taser and bean-bag shotgun failed, Houston police said.
The incident happened between 4 and 5 p.m. at a home in the 5000 block of Curtain, where police were called to help in a family dispute, said Houston Police Officer Gabe Ortiz.
