Police investigate the shooting of an armed, naked man who drove through a gate at a northeast Houston substation, hit several cars and then threatened police with a handgun, according to authorities. Six officers shot at him.

Officers shot and killed a naked, gun-toting man who rammed his car into a gate and fired at least one shot at a police station in northeast Houston early this morning, officials said.

The man, who has not been identified, died at the scene outside the Houston Police Department's Northeast Patrol Station in the 8300 block of Ley Road about 2:40 a.m., police spokesman John Cannon said.

Around 2:30 this morning, police said they received reports, including one from an Aldine ISD police officer, of a man in a white Mitsubishi Mirage driving erratically and waving a gun around the U.S. 59 and 610 Loop interchange.

Moments later, Cannon said the man, who was alone in his car, drove to the station and then smashed into a locked gate at the lot where officers park their private vehicles. He went around the building, failed to smash through a second gate, reversed course and smashed into a car under a sallyport where police process prisoners.


The suspect emerged from the car with a 9-millimeter handgun and threatened officers, firing at least once, Cannon said. That's when six officers fired at him.


No officers were hurt and no other injuries were reported. Several cars in the parking lot were damaged.

It's unclear why the man rammed the gate, Cannon said. A toxicology report will be done as part of an autopsy by Harris County medical examiners.

Cannon said the department was checking whether the man had any connection to any of the people who were in custody at the police station. However, Cannon also said the man might simply have been attracted to the large, brightly lit police facility, which stands out in an otherwise dark and sparsely populated part of town.

The officers involved in the shooting are: Kevin D. Eichman, 35; Nativida G. Tovar III, 41; Domingo Villarreal Jr., 23; Edward T. Fendia, 31; Darrell K. Marshall, 46; and
Thomas M. Reese, 46.

My guess...overheating from the amphetamines and on a psychotic break from the same. "Naked" is a big clue.
