A struggle between an armed man and a police officer led to a shooting in north Houston early Saturday, according to the Houston Police Department.

This happened on West Little York near the Eastex Freeway.

Houston Police Assistant Chief Chandra Hatcher said it all started when a driver in a red car flagged down an officer heading south on the Eastex Freeway feeder road. The driver in a red vehicle told the officer that a black vehicle was stolen.

As the officer tried to approach the black vehicle to stop it, that vehicle was involved in a crash, police said. The officer then tried the follow the vehicle, but then the driver got out and ran into a nearby parking lot on Little York.

The officer ran after the man and caught up to him. Hatcher said as the officer tried to take the driver into custody, the man pulled out a pistol.

The officer ordered him to put the gun down, but he refused and a struggle ensued, Hatcher said. During the struggle, the gun went off multiple times, hitting the driver in the wrist and arm.

A security officer heard the gunshots and went to help the officer.

One would think shooting yourself once would be sufficient, and KHOU is there. BZ to the guard for stepping up. Thanks again, Gun Bunny.

Go ahead, make my day.

Good on the guard, I know a lot of them won’t step up, company policy or whatever.


Go fish!


Sooo…we have us a punk that thought he felt lucky? Rolled snake eyes and crapped out.

Not sure that, if I had a spare pert near 4 large laying around, I’d be in the market for that hand cannon, tho it is made of metal and wood as intended by…well…you knows who.


Brass for .44AMP is airly easily made from cut-down .308/.30-06 brass using standard .44Mag dies, a .308/.30 shell plate, and a neck reamer.

Some assembly required.

When I used to go to the County range to sharpen my skills when I was on the companys pistol team, One night the guy in the shooting point next to me had the 44 Auto Mag and a big flame used to shoot out everytime he fired. The only thing coming out of my S&W Mod 14 6in. barrel were sparks from the corn cob media I was using to clean the cases when I was using a re loading press that put out a complete round every time the handle was pulled back. Had an aluminum platen unlike the older presses. Forgot the name of that type of press that gave you a completed rounf on every pull. Mind when blank when I was ready to type it in. I think the name started with the letter C. Used it in the early seventies into the mid 80’s.

Progressive press I had back then. Had to look it up.
