A man who had a history of mental health issues has been shot and fatally shot by police, a Houston police spokesperson said Tuesday.
Police said the shooting happened about 4:30 a.m. in the 300 block of South Main Street in the Humble section of the city.
Police were called to the scene to investigate a report of a man with a gunshot wound, said Officer Jennifer Salisbury of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office.
When officers arrived, they found a male who had suffered a gunshot to the torso and was bleeding, Salisbury said.
The male was taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The police spokesperson did not provide further details about the male or whether he was armed.
A third officer was also injured in the shooting, and was treated and released.
A fourth officer, who was not identified, was also hurt in the incident.
Salisbury did not have any additional details about when the shooting occurred.
In February, a police officer in San Francisco fatally shot a man who tried to rob a woman at gunpoint.
The suspect was later found dead in his car in San Jose.
In the Houston incident, authorities said that officers found a man suffering from a gunshot in the 400 block of S. Main Street about 6 a.g.
The man told police he had a mental illness and was acting out, Salcombe said.
Police also said the man was wearing a mask at the time.
The incident was investigated by the San Jose Police Department, but no criminal charges have been filed.
Police in Dallas shot and injured a man, who died at the scene.
The shooting occurred about 2:20 p.m., Salisbury told reporters.
The department has not released the names of the officers who fired their weapons.
Salbourne said that the officer involved in the San Francisco incident was not wearing a body camera, and that there was no video from the Dallas shooting.
Dallas police also have not released any video from Monday’s shooting.
On Monday, police in San Diego fired at a suspect who was running down a sidewalk near a church.
The person was shot multiple times, and died at a hospital, according to CBS affiliate KENS.
