Robert Julius Paramore, 51, is facing two counts of aggravated assault against an officer, records show.
The video above is from a previous report.
According to HPD deputy chief Ben Tien, police were called to the 4500 block of Warm Springs Drive, near Huggins Drive, where Paramore allegedly said he wanted to die by suicide.
A family member told police the suspect came home drunk and threatened to kill himself, HPD investigators said.

When police first responded, officers said they noticed a car owned by Paramore had been vandalized in a yard off the neighborhood off US 90 Alternate.
When they got to the house and waited for backup, they said they heard gunshots coming from the closed garage.
When help arrived, the suspect started shooting again, this time opening the garage door. HPD said officers issued numerous orders to Paramore to drop the gun and when the suspect ignored it, an officer discharged his gun.
Paramore was shot multiple times and taken to a hospital after receiving help from HFD. He stays in the hospital.
A press release authored by HPD identified the officer who opened fire only as C. Taylor, who Tien said has been with the department for two years.
The officer has been placed on administrative leave in accordance with police policy.
The incident is being investigated by the HPD Special Investigations Unit, the Department of Internal Affairs and the Harris County Attorney’s Office. Bodycam recordings are also published within 30 days.
