HOUSTON (AP) — Houston police have arrested a part-time UPS employee accused of firing a shotgun outside a company facility and pointing the weapon toward officers.
Police spokesman Victor Senties says two sergeants opened fire Tuesday before the suspect surrendered. Nobody was hurt.
UPS spokeswoman Susan Rosenberg says the suspect was recently hired for work inside the facility. She had no information on what prompted the disturbance.
Other UPS employees reported a man in the parking lot firing a shotgun. Senties says two sergeants responded, heard the suspect fire a round and ordered him to drop the weapon. He refused and pointed the shotgun toward the officers — who then opened fire.
The suspect surrendered. His name wasn't released, pending charges.
The sergeants are on administrative duty pending a review of the incident.
