PASADENA, Texas – An investigation is underway after police said a woman shot and killed a man who was banging on her co-worker’s car window and crashed into other vehicles while at a business in Pasadena Wednesday.

Officers with the Pasadena Police Department received a call about a shooting at a laboratory business located at 1404 South Houston Rd. around 12:16 a.m.

Upon arrival, police said they learned that an employee exited the company building through an electric gate when she saw a man hitting a side window on her car with his fist. Investigators said the man also yelled at the employee, who said she did not know or recognize the man.

Officers said another female employee who was outside of the business but still inside the gated area was able to retrieve a handgun that was lawfully in her possession and confront the man. The man then attacked the woman who had the gun and a struggle ensued, Pasadena PD said.

Police said the woman shot the man twice, which ended the struggle.

The man was transported to HCA Southeast, where officers said he was pronounced dead.

Neither of the employees involved in the incident were reportedly injured.

Investigators said the case will go to a grand jury.
