Houston police have shot and killed a man who allegedly fired into his estranged wife's office then tried to enter the building.

Internal affairs officers are reviewing Tuesday afternoon's shooting. Police say the officer who fatally shot the suspect has been with the force since 1984.

Police say a 911 call from the woman, who had a restraining order against her husband, summoned officers.

Investigators say the suspect, who briefly ducked into a waiting cub he apparently took to the building, refused to put down a pistol and threatened to harm his spouse. An officer shot the husband before the suspect could enter the woman's building.

Houston police believe the gunman, whose name was not immediately released, was also responsible for a shot fired into the building early Tuesday.
