HOUSTON — Houston police are investigating after suspects allegedly fired several shots at a Harris County constable’s deputy outside a motel Friday morning in the Briar Forest area.
Investigators said an officer with Precinct 1 was working an extra security job at the Motel 6 in the 2900 block of W. Sam Houston Parkway South when he noticed two suspicious men in the parking lot about 12:05 a.m.
The officer asked the men to leave, and in response, one man pulled out a handgun and fired. Both suspects then ran off.
The constable deputy was not hit and was unable to fire back, police said.
The suspects — who are believed to be in their late 20s or early 30s — remain at large.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Major Assaults and Family Violence Division at 713-308-8800 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
