HOUSTON - A reserve deputy shot and killed a man he said pulled out a gun at a Cash America Pawn shop in north Harris County.
It happened Wednesday evening on Airline Drive near Lorino Street.
According to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, clerks called police about a suspicious customer.
When a deputy arrived, he asked the suspect for his identification. The deputy said the suspect said it was in his vehicle, so the deputy followed him to the vehicle.
The deputy said as the suspect reached into his vehicle to retrieve his ID, he pulled a gun from his waistband and shot twice at the deputy.
The deputy then returned fire, striking the suspect.
The suspect, identified as 20-year-old Misraim Nathaniel Cisneros, died at Ben Taub Hospital.
The deputy has been identified as Lt. J. Rollins, a 30-year veteran of the Harris Co. Sheriff's Reserves.
Both HCSO Internal Affairs and Office of Inspector General, as well as the District Attorney's Office, will investigate the shooting.
HCSO says reserve deputies get the same training and have the same legal authority. The only difference is they volunteer their time.
