HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A person of interest  wanted for questioning in connection with a double-homicide was shot Sunday afternoon by police. The shooting happened at a Houston gas station.

The Houston Police Department responded to a call of a suspicious vehicle at about 3:30 p.m. on Sunday. The car was reported to be in a parking lot behind a gas station located on West Airport Boulevard near Hillcroft Street.

When they arrived, police recognized a Dodge Dakota truck related to the shooting deaths of a mother and her son Saturday in southwest Houston.

As authorities approached the driver of the truck, who then got out of his vehicle, the driver then reportedly reached for a gun and began firing shots at police. HPD returned fire on the man.

During the shootout, police wounded the man who was later identified as Keith Turner. He was taken to Hermann Hospital to be treated for a gunshot wound.

In the midst of the shootout trapped in their SUV, was a mother and her two young children. One of the three officers protected the family and placed himself in harm’s way doing so. The officer reportedly went to the SUV, got the mother and two children out and led them to safety, while the gun battle between Turner and police officers was going on.

Turner, whose mother and younger brother were found shot to death Saturday in their home, was a person of interest in the shooting.

Turner’s family members were found fatally shot in their home located in the 7100 block of Bahia Lane near Blue Ridge Road. At time of this report, police reiterated that Turner was just a person of interest in the shooting and not been charged with any crime.
