A deer ran wild inside a research laboratory in the Woodlands and caused a lot of damage.Firefighters responded to an initial report of an explosion at Trans Ionics Corporation on Timberloch at Grogans Mill. Officers determined there was no explosion, but instead found an eight point buck inside the building.

The animal had knocked out a window and caused lots of damage to some offices. Sheriff's deputies securing the scene heard a commotion in an office and a sergeant went to investigate.

Deputy Chief Wayne Walker with The Woodlands Fire Department said, "I believe he charged the officer. At that time the officer discharged his firearm to protect himself and that's the end of that story."

The sergeant fired three times and killed the deer, which was taken away by game wardens.
