HOUSTON — Houston police say a man has been killed in a shootout with officers after a cross-county chase.

The chase started in the Brazoria County town of Liverpool and ended in southeast Houston on Wednesday. Police say they engaged the driver after a man said he'd been assaulted by a person with a weapon.

Police spokeswoman Jodi Silva says the driver eventually stopped at a Houston home and fired a shotgun at a Pearland officer. She says the officer shot back.

She says the man then pulled a handgun out of the truck and fired at officers, at least four of whom returned fire. The suspect died at the scene.

Neighbors tell KTRK-TV and KHOU-TV they heard about 50 gunshots.

No officers were injured.

The suspect and officers' names haven't been released.
