(FORT BEND COUNTY, TX) – On June 6, 2021, a Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office (FBCSO) Deputy was involved in an officer involved shooting incident while working security for a private event at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Needville. The Deputy encountered a 24-year-old male subject who was involved in a disturbance with other attendees of the event. Preliminary reports indicate the subject was wielding a knife, refused to drop the weapon and continued efforts to assault citizens and the Deputy.

 

The Deputy is a veteran Sergeant of the FBCSO and multiple witnesses are cooperating with the investigation, which is being conducted by the Texas Rangers, Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office and FBCSO.

 

While we are aware of social media postings of post-incident events, Investigators are reviewing more comprehensive videos of the incident, which are currently unavailable for release.

 

More information will be forthcoming regarding this multi-agency investigation.
