HOUSTON – A man is in custody after he reportedly pointed a gun at two Houston Fire Department paramedics in west Houston Monday, officers with the Houston Police Department said.

Tian Kingsley, 30, has been charged with aggravated assault on a public servant and retaliation. He is expected to appear in court Wednesday.

It happened in the 3300 block of Breezewood Drive around 6 p.m. when one of the medic units was returning to the station. Investigators said a vehicle pulled up next to the crew and the suspect pointed a gun at them. Westside patrol officers responded to the scene, HPD said.

According to officers, no shots were fired and no injuries were reported.

Chief Samuel Peña with HFD made a public plea for safety after the incident.

“No one hurt, but such deadly conduct is outrageous and inexcusable,” the chief said while addressing the incident on Twitter.

Peña continued, asking the public to allow firefighters “to do their job keeping everyone safe, without violence or incident.”
