HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Officials are investigating a fatal DPS trooper-involved shooting that took place at a shopping center parking lot in the Copperfield area of northwest Harris County on Wednesday.

According to reports, the shooting was reported in the 15000 block of FM 52. Although the Harris County Sheriff’s Office reportedly stated that the shooting took place, additional reports indicate that the Texas Department of Public Safety is spearheading the investigation.

Further reports stated that officials took note of a suspicious male and attempted to question him about possible car break-ins in the parking lot. That suspect reportedly ignored the official questioning him and kept walking; as a result of being ignored by the suspect, the trooper followed him in his vehicle.

The suspect then pulled out a gun and pointed it at the trooper. It was then that the trooper fatally shot the suspect. Later, the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.

There was no information disclosed at the time of this report.

CBS Houston will continue to follow updates to this story as they become available.
