Pearland police came up empty handed as they searched for an armed man overnight. An officer on patrol attempted to question the man late last night, when he suddenly pulled a gun and began waving it in the air. Police say the officer was in fear of his life and fired at the suspect who then ran into some nearby woods.

Police searched those woods for hours, but did not find the man. It's unknown if he was hit by the officer's shot.
