By  | 

HOUSTON (AP) Houston police have shot and killed a gunman who randomly fired into the air before targeting the officers.

Police did not immediately release the name of the man who was fatally shot Monday night near a gas station. No officers were hurt.

Police answered a call about a man in an SUV firing shots. Police say the gunman refused to show his hands and instead ran behind the gas station.

Police say two officers chased the suspect when he twice fired shots at the pair. One of the officers discharged her weapon during the chase. The fleeing suspect tried to hide in some bushes when he pointed a gun at another officer - who fatally shot the man.

The incident will be reviewed by police internal affairs.
