CONROE, Texas (AP) — Deputy Constables say they shot and killed a man inside his house near Conroe after the man met them with a gun.

The shooting happened in the pre-dawn hours of Sunday as the deputies tried to serve a felony warrant.

The Montgomery County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office says the deputies were allowed into the house where they encountered their suspect, who was a guest in the home. A constable’s office statement says the man grabbed a handgun, prompting the deputies to open fire. The man was dead where he fell.

No identities have been released.
