A woman who identified herself on the scene as the man's wife said his name is Alva Braziel. According to public records, Braziel is a 38-year-old black man. News about the shooting quickly appeared on social media where posts said "Groucho" was his nickname. He lived less than three blocks from where he died. Braziel was a felon and was not authorized to have a weapon. Since 2000, he has faced more than a dozen criminal charges in Harris County - mostly drug possession cases but also burglary of a vehicle, resisting arrest and evading detention. According to a statement released Saturday afternoon from Acting Houston Police Chief Martha I. Montalvo, there are "early indications" that the armed man "might have been under the influence of a narcotic, refused all officers' commands to drop his gun and instead pointed the gun at officers."
