Shots Fired at Occupy Houston

Reports are coming in via Twitter about shots fired at Tranquility Park, home of the Occupy Houston protest.

It seems the incident is over, with the only injury being the shooter.

The intrepid Kyle Neilsen is on the scene, and he reports a man dressed in "business casual" fired shots and then was subdued by the police.

Initial reports also include talk of the man shooting himself before being hit by HPD's rubber bullets. Media outlets are saying the gunman was shot in the leg by HPD. It's not clear if the shooting was related to Occupy Houston or not at this point.

Most importantly, though, is that the incident does seem to be over one way or the other, and it appears no innocents were hurt.
