HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A sheriff’s deputy opened fire on a suspect who attempted to flee from authorities after they discovered he was allegedly using a stolen credit card for a purchase at a Houston-area mall.

The incident happened at the Woodlands Mall on Wednesday just after noon. According to reports, 41-year-old Taud Damonn Washington allegedly attempted to use a stolen credit card at a store in the mall. When it was discovered that the purchase he made was fraudulent, Washington reportedly ran through two department stores and then to a parked car in the parking lot of the mall.

A deputy then approached the car Washington was in but Washington refused to get out and surrender to the deputy.

The suspect then turned on the car and pulled forward. It was then that the deputy fired shots at Washington’s vehicle. Washington who is a registered sex offender, then surrendered to authorities. He currently faces an aggravated assault charge and possible a credit card abuse charge.

Additional reports indicate that Washington has previous convictions including: drug possession, aggravated robbery, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, public lewdness, indecent exposure, credit card abuse, theft and trespassing.
