A deputy constable has been shot and killed in a Houston suburb this morning, shot by a fellow law enforcement officer.

The constable and a Fort Bend County Sheriff's deputy were investigating reports of a suspicious person seen running from a home in Missouri City.

The deputy opened fire, apparently thinking there was a suspect in the house.

The constable was mortally wounded and died at a Houston hospital about 15 miles away.
