HOUSTON -

Police are hoping newly released surveillance photos will help them find the suspect wanted for impersonating an officer and shooting a man last month.

Houston police said the photos were taken around 11:50 p.m. Nov. 2 in the 9400 block of Bellaire Boulevard.

People who live at the complex are worried.

Anita Sham says, "He was wearing a police uniform, that is the scary part. How do we know that if he is really a cop or not?"

Officials said victim was in his apartment when the suspect, dressed in a Houston police officer's uniform, broke into the residence using a crowbar. The suspect pointed a gun at the victim. When the two men struggled over the gun, it went off and hit the victim.

Some are questioning where the suspect would even find an HPD uniform.

Michael Ybanez with HPD says, "It's not unfeasible for uniforms to be lost or stolen or obtained through say a laundry mat or something like that."

Police said the victim was chased into his living room where he again struggled with the suspect.

The suspect, who police describe only as an Asian man in his 20s, then took off.

Anyone with information on the wanted suspect is asked to call the HPD Major Offenders Division at 713-308-3100 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

Police say if you ever feel as if you're approached by someone pretending to be an officer, you are always encouraged to call 911 and verify that it is in fact is a real officer.
