Violence broke out at Occupy Houston’s Tranquility Park site Monday evening. A gunman armed with a .40-caliber rifle shot approximately 15 rounds into the air and into the park’s fountains before being shot twice by Houston Police officers patrolling the area. He was taken into custody. Witnesses say the gunman — a twenty-something male in a dark suit with a white shirt — entered the park through a stairwell.
