HOUSTON—An officer shot a man who allegedly fired a rifle Monday evening in downtown Houston’s Tranquility Park, Houston police said.   

It happened around 5 p.m. at Bagby and Rusk near City Hall.  

Witnesses say a 21-year-old man wearing a business suit was walking near Tranquility Park and firing shots first into the air, and then into the fountain.

An officer confronted the man and shot him in the ankle.  Cell phone video captured the man on the ground after the shooting and officers running to the area.
