November 2, 2012 - Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a suspect by an off-duty reserve Harris County Precinct 7 deputy constable about 6:10 p.m. on Thursday (Nov. 1).
The suspect, identified as Corey Hayes (8-23-90), was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Harris County Precinct 7 deputy who discharged her duty weapon was not injured in the incident.
HPD Homicide Division Officers J. Dominguez and C. Hassig reported:
Hayes got into a disturbance with his mother and grandmother, who live in an apartment near the deputy, at the above address. At some point during the disturbance, the mother and grandmother fled to the deputy's apartment and forced their way inside as the deputy was walking in her front door. Moments later, Hayes broke into the deputy's residence by kicking in the front door. The deputy identified herself as an officer and gave verbal commands for Hayes to stop, which he ignored. Hayes then charged toward the deputy and his mother. Fearing for her safety and that of Hayes' family members, the deputy discharged her duty weapon and struck Hayes.
As is customary in officer-involved shooting incidents in the city limits, this case is being investigated by the HPD Homicide Division and the Harris County District Attornery's Office. The Precinct 7 Constable's Internal Affairs Unit will also investigate the incident.
