Authorities said they were conducting surveillance on Alberto Riascos, who was wanted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and was a suspect in a homicide. 

During the surveillance, authorities saw Riascos leave an apartment and go to a nearby business. 

As Riascos walked back to the apartment complex, officers approached him and attempted to take him into custody. 

However, police said Riascos had a weapon and fired at a Houston Police Department Sergeant. 


As a result, the sergeant fired his weapon striking Riascos, police said. 

Authorities said medical aid was given to Riascos before EMS arrived. However, Riascos was pronounced dead at the scene. 

No officers were injured in the shooting.
