Texas deputies performing after-hours extra duty last week in Harris County learned that their job never actually ends when they were forced to open fire on a man who discharged his weapon in a parking lot.
The three off-duty deputies were making a little extra cash in front of a Houston bar when a 27-year-old man in a car opened fire on a crowd of individuals who were involved in a fight.
The situation unfolded at about 2AM on Friday at Johnny B’s Outlaw Saloon, when deputies working security witnessed a group of young men fighting. During the confrontation, 27-year-old Adrian Gonzalez began firing shots into the air from his vehicle.
Making a split-second decision, the three officers banded together- with two opening fire on the vehicle, killing Gonzalez and taking his passenger into custody.
During the shootout, the crowd of combative men dispersed along with bystanders, who all rushed for cover to avoid injury.
“We just heard shots, and we were with friends, and went behind the brick wall,” bystander Ralph Banda said. “I told them to stay right there and wait till the gunshots were over.”
According to KHOU, the two deputies who fired the fatal shots have been put on administrative leave pending investigation.
Gonzalez, who was arrested before for drugs, burglary and theft, was reportedly a father with a young son. His family members did not want to comment on the event.
