A teenager was shot to death by Harris County Sheriff’s Office deputies while officials tried to recover a stolen vehicle in a neighborhood in northeast Harris County, according to authorities.

HCSO said deputies were called to the 9800 block of Fleming Springs Drive at about 10 a.m. to help retrieve the car.

Law enforcement officers knocked on the door of a house in the area. A suspect then ran away from the home, and he was in his late teens.

Deputies began searching for the suspect.

They then found a teen who matched the description of the suspect.

HCSO said deputies told the teen to stop fleeing, and he did not listen.

He then took out an Uzi semiautomatic pistol, and he did not follow orders to put the weapon down.

Two deputies fired their guns, and the teenager was hit.

EMS was called, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities were not injured, but one of the deputies was taken to the hospital for precautionary measures.
