At approximately 5:50 p.m., a bar owner called the Houston Police Department to remove an armed suspect from the bar on the 700 block of West Mount Houston Road.

The bar owner told investigators the suspect threatened customers with a gun and previously opened fire in the bar on Friday night.

Police found the 48-year-old at a nearby tire shop with the door open, HPD says.

The suspect was sitting with a gun on the table nearby and an Uzi near some boxes, police say.

Officers gave orders before the suspect reached for the gun on the table, prompting officers to open fire, investigators say.

The 48-year-old was shot at least twice and taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition. He is currently undergoing surgery.

The suspect had an outstanding arrest warrant for involvement in organized crime.
