Harris County Sheriff spokesman Thomas Gilliland tells KHOU-TV that deputies were called to a home in the 2200 block of Falling Oaks Road about 9 p.m. Saturday. He says deputies subsequently received information indicating that a man inside the home was wanted on an aggravated assault warrant.

Gilliland says while waiting for a High Risk Operations Unit, deputies spotted the body of a juvenile through a window. Four deputies forced themselves inside, prompting the 49-year-old suspect to begin shooting.

Deputies pulled back, and the man surrendered about an hour later.

The relationship between the suspect and victims wasn’t immediately known.
