TEXAS CITY, Texas (AP) - Police are investigating an officer’s fatal shooting of a man who authorities say was firing at customers leaving a crowded Texas City club at closing and then pointed the gun at one of several officers who responded to a call for help from the club’s owners.

Texas City Police Chief Robert Burby says the gunman was shot early Friday after failing to comply with warnings from the officer to drop his weapon.

Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset says investigators are looking at videos, including one from the officer’s patrol car camera. Burby says a video confirms the officer demanded the man drop his gun.

Names of those involved in the shooting are not being immediately released.

Texas City is about 40 miles southeast of Houston.
