Police had their guns drawn when Pappas pulled a gun and shot himself in the mouth.

HOUSTON – Police say Joseph James Pappas II, 62, the suspect in the murder of a prominent Houston cardiologist, shot and killed himself during an encounter with police in southwest Houston Friday morning.

According to the Houston Police Department, it happened shortly after 9:30 a.m. outside of a residence on Bob White Drive at Imogene.

Neighbor saw a slender man on bike with hat, and then heard “put your hands up.” The sound of gunshots then rang out.

SWAT officers and Harris County Pct. 5 deputies late Thursday night were at the home of Pappas after neighbors called for law enforcement presence because they feared Pappas would return to his home when no one was watching.

Officials did not find Pappas. They cleared and secured the home just after midnight early Friday.

Pappas was the son of a woman who was treated by the victim, Dr. Mark Hausknecht. She died during surgery more than two decades ago.Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said it appears that Pappas had held a grudge against the doctor.

What a jerk! The good doctor didn't kill his mother purposefully. It just happened. This way the taxpayers of Harris County don't have to pay for his stay in the county jail. Good riddance to rubbish.
