HOUSTON –  A Houston police officer shot  and killed a one-armed, one-legged man in a wheelchair inside a group home after police say the double amputee threatened the officer and aggressively  waved a metal object that turned out to be a pen.

Police spokeswoman Jodi Silva said the man cornered the officer in his  wheelchair and was making threats while trying to stab the officer with the pen.

At the time, the officer did not know what the metal object was that the man was  waving, Silva said.

She said the man came “within inches to a foot” of the officer and did not  follow instructions to calm down and remain still.

The man lost a leg above the knee and all of one arm when  he was hit by a train.  Full Article
