Police say a shooting reported at a southeast Houston dental practice was the result of a man exposing himself inside the building.
Officers arrived at around 1 p.m. Tuesday to the New Teeth Dental Solutions facility on Broadway Street near the Gulf Freeway in response to the reported shooting. After police say the man took off all his clothes, he began to fondle himself and chased employees throughout the office. A dentist from the office spoke with the naked man outside the building. When that man became aggressive, that dentist fired a gunshot at the man, which wounded him.
The wounded man, who police have not identified, was taken to Ben Taub Hospital with injuries determined not be life-threatening.
One of the dentists from the practice tells FOX 26 News that said he did what he had to to protect the staff. No charges were filed against the dentist who shot the man.
