A retired Houston police officer shot his knife-wielding neighbor Saturday night, authorities said.

The 58-year-old former officer was working in his yard in the 18000 block of Harnet around 7:20 p.m. when his 20-year-old neighbor approached him – wearing a black ski mask and holding a black-handled machete, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

The homeowner told the suspect several times to drop the knife. When he refused, the retired officer shot him once, authorities said.


The man was hit in the stomach and taken to the hospital in unknown condition, according to KPRC.
