A suspect who injured a deputy constable by running him over with a car in Texas was fatally shot by police, Houston authorities said. 

“We have shots fired. Hold the channel. He just ran into the house… Need EMS ASAP. Suspect is going to be down. Suspect is down,” emergency responders were heard saying on radio calls.

The incident unfolded Wednesday evening in Houston when a family dispute reportedly broke out at a church, according to authorities. The suspect in the case allegedly rammed his car into several others on a parking lot before he drove off and a deputy constable saw the suspect driving the wrong way down a road.
