Saavedra repeatedly asks the officer as he clambers out of his car:
"What did I do?"
The policeman commands him:
"Stay in the vehicle. Show me your hands."
Saavedra yelled:
"No," revealing a gun and pointing it towards the cop as he backs towards his car.

 The officer said:
"Hey," before letting off a some shots.

Saavedra was posthumously found to be carrying a stolen weapon, wanted for aggravated assault and jumping bail.

Assistant Police Chief Josh Bruegger told local news channel CW39 :
 "Once the suspect vehicle and police vehicle came to a stop, the suspect opened the door, was very animated with his hands before he stood up, placed his right hand behind his back."
"The officer gave him verbal commands, at which time, the suspect drew a weapon, pointed at the officer."
"When the suspect points a weapon at the officer, the officer has no choice but to defend himself."

The officer who has not been named, had never shot anyone before and is now on administrative leave - a standard procedure after a police shooting.

Mr Bruegger ended:
"He is obviously shaken up. Anytime an officer is in a position where he has to take someone's life, it's a stressful situation."
A Harris County grand jury will review the case.
