A man who brandished a rifle at Tranquility Park downtown this evening is hospitalized after he was shot by a Houston police officer.
HPD says the shooting took place near the Occupy Houston camp across the street from City Hall. Authorities don't think the man was connected to the Occupy protest and aren't sure why he had the gun.
