Police released a statement about the shooting:

On Tuesday November 15, 2016 at approximately 7pm, officers from multiple different agencies, to include the Webster, Alvin, Friendswood, and League City Police Departments, were working together to arrest a wanted suspect at a motel located along the 800 block of West Bay Area Boulevard in the City of Webster, Harris County. The wanted suspect, a 38 year old white male, and a known violent offender, was observed sitting in the front seat of a vehicle in the parking lot. When officers approached, and gave numerous commands for him to show his hands, the suspect produced a handgun and pointed it at officers. Fearing for the safety of all officers on-scene, two officers then engaged the suspect with gunfire, and he is deceased on-scene.
