The standoff happened Wednesday morning in Clear Lake Shores, located 22 miles northwest of Galveston. The community’s police department says an officer dispatched on a domestic-disturbance call went to a house about 5 a.m. Wednesday and was met with a gunshot from inside. The officer injured his shoulder diving from the porch to safety. City and police officials told reporters the man threatened officers who approached the house after 4 1/2 hours of negotiations. Officers shot him dead.
