A young man who was shot by a sheriff's deputy at an east Harris County home has died from his wound. The man died at Ben Taub Hospital a few hours after the shooting at a home on Castle Glen. The sheriff's office had received a call that the 20-year-old was threatening other family members in the home.

The deputy who answered the call says the man confronted him with a steel pipe. When the man moved toward the deputy and refused to drop the pipe, the deputy fired one shot. The victim's name has not been released.
