Video captured the confrontation on Dec. 10 in the 10200 block of Valencia Drive. Houston police released body camera and Ring doorbell footage Thursday that showed the confrontation with the suspect identified as Marc Anthony Limon.
At about 1:15 p.m., officers responded to a family disturbance call, but by the time they arrived at the home, Limon was no longer there.

HPD Assistant Chief Ban Tien said officers spent approximately 45 minutes at the scene trying to find Limon when they noticed the man's vehicle driving back toward the house.
During an attempt to stop Limon, the man reached out the vehicle's window and waved a gun, according to Tien. Limon refused to stop, leading officers on a two-minute chase.
On his way back toward his family member's house, newly-released video shows Limon jump out of the vehicle and fire shots at the officers.
These are the weapons used by the suspect against our officers. The damage to the patrol vehicle can be seen on the windshield and on the roof near the light bar. Thankfully, our officers were not injured. #HouNews https://t.co/qv7K3nV3M4 pic.twitter.com/bP99tAG2Lc— Houston Police (@houstonpolice) December 10, 2021
Three officers returned fire, but none of them were struck.
In the video, officers can be heard asking where Limon went because they no longer had sight of him. Body camera footage then shows officers running toward the side of a home, where Limon is seen lying on the ground.
"Turn on your stomach, turn on your stomach," one officer can be heard saying.
In response, Limon says, "I can't. You shot me right here."
HPD said Limon sustained a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
Video shows an officer immediately rendering aid before Limon was rushed to the hospital. He underwent surgery and is now in jail, according to court documents.
Limon is expected back in court Feb. 2.
"We are in the very early stages of the investigation, and we continue to process additional evidence as it becomes available," said HPD assistant chief Yasar Bashir.
