The sheriff’s office says deputies asked Hurlock to drop a knife he was holding and put his hands behind his back, but he instead ran into the street.

According to the sheriff’s office, deputies attempted to subdue him with a Taser. The sheriff’s office says deputies struggled to restrain Hurlock and he slashed at them with a knife before deputies fired multiple gunshots.

Hurlock was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The incident remains under investigation by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Division, Sheriff’s Office Internal Affairs, and the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.
