When the suspect attempted to car jack a vehicle coming out of a car wash, deputies tried to subdue him with a stun gun to no avail.

It was after the suspect allegedly reached into his backpack for a gun that the deputy shot him at close range, killing him instantly.

Houston Fire Department EMS responded but could not help the motorcyclist.
