Unidentified Male, Bayou Body Count No. 32

An unidentified male of unknown age was shot by an off-duty Houston Police officer Wednesday night. Officer S. Bryant, a 15-year veteran of HPD currently assigned to the Narcotics Division, was working an extra job at the Emerald Bay Apartments (6767 Bennington) when he witnessed two men in a car involved in suspected drug activity.

Officer Bryant approached the vehicle, identified himself as a police officer and asked the men to step out of the car. One of the suspects turned in his seat to reach for a weapon. He was shot once by Officer Bryant and pronounced dead at the scene.

Police found a loaded weapon and drugs in the suspect's vehicle.

Like all other HPD officer-involved shootings in the city limits, the incident is being investigated by the HPD Homicide and Internal Affairs divisions and the Harris County District Attorney's Office.
