Pasadena police officers shot and killed a man while they were attempting to serve a felony warrant in Seabrook on Thursday night, officials say.

The shooting occurred around 10:30 p.m. in the 2600 block of Repsdorph Road.


According to Pasadena PD, officers were looking for 35-year-old Samuel Frias who was wanted in connection with a felony aggravated assault – domestic violence case that occurred in February. Police say he was also a person of interest in a homicide that occurred earlier this month in Pasadena.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

No officers or other citizens were injured in the shooting.

Multiple agencies are investigating, including the Pasadena Police Department, Seabrook investigators, and a team with the District Attorney’s Office.
