Alejandro Salazar was also killed in Houston and then not named publicly. Salazar was being pursued by officials working for the Gulf Coast violent offenders task force on charges of robbery and assault when he was shot dead in February, according to the Harris County sheriff’s office.

The sheriff’s office, which is investigating the shooting, said Salazar emerged from a vehicle with a gun in a shopping centre parking lot after hiding in the back with a child while the officials spoke with a woman travelling with him.

Salazar was shot by a US marshals deputy and an officer from the Texas department of criminal justice, according to authorities. His name was released by a spokesman for the US marshals service, who said he could provide no other information about him.
