Four deputy constables opened fired on a man outside his northwest Harris County home Friday after authorities said he charged at them with a pellet gun.
Richard Williams was taken by Life Flight to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he was in critical condition.
Williams, 35, a recruiter for an accounting firm in downtown Houston, suffers from depression, his family said. His parents questioned why deadly force was used to stop a man who was clearly troubled.
