HOUSTON (AP) — A burglary suspect who attempted to carjack several motorists last week before being fatally shot by Houston police had a prior run-in with officers who shot him as he waved a machete.

Authorities said 37-year-old Anthony Williams had robbed a gas station Thursday when he attempted to flee from police by carjacking passing motorists. Officials said he was pointing a gun at officers when one shot him multiple times.

The Houston Chronicle cited court records in reporting that Williams at the time was out on bail on charges that included aggravated assault on a public servant.

Those charges stem from an April 2017 incident in which Williams waved a machete at a man and later at officers. Records say the officers shot him when he didn’t comply with orders to drop the weapon.
