The arrow hit the victim in the torso, according to co-workers. “I saw him with a bow and arrow in the side of the chest, just fading," said Alex Quiroga, the victim's co-worker. "The girl was running toward the building, the hallway.” They said the unidentified man was loaded into an ambulance with the arrow still sticking out of his chest. "Yea, was pretty scary," said Mike Barrera, a witness. "I just seen when they got him out of the building there and he had an arrow on the left side and he wouldn't fit inside the ambulance, so had to cut the arrow off to get him in." It happened Monday afternoon at Texas Components, a micro electronics company located at 1662 West Sam Houston Parkway. Witnesses said other employees of the business pulled out their own pistols and held the woman at bay until police arrived. “When police got here, I gave them directions of what I saw and they surrounded the area," said George Dustin, another witness. "They moved in, there was half a dozen gunshots inside.” A Houston Police Department spokesperson confirmed that an officer shot the female suspect after a brief standoff. It's not clear why she was shot. She was also taken to an area hospital. Police interviewed several witnesses at the scene.
