HOUSTON – A police officer shot and killed a knife-wielding suspect on a Metro bus Friday afternoon, investigators said.

A witness named Oris Boutte sitting in his truck near the bus stop shot this exclusive home footage.

HPD confirmed that there was a fight on the bus, and one of the people involved had a knife. When Metro and HPD officers boarded the bus in the 11300 block of W. Bellfort, investigators said the suspect was holding a hostage at knifepoint.

Officers lifted the rear hatch and turned off the bus before storming inside. One of the officers opened fire and hit the suspect, who later died at Ben Taub hospital.
