Sugar Land Police Shoot, Kill Man

Sugar Land Police Shoot, Kill Man

A Sugar Land man is dead after police shoot and kill him in front of his parents. 

Police spokesman Doug Adolph say this wasn't the first time police were called to the home on Lakefield for a domestic disturbance call.

However, he says 31-year-old Sean Isensee this time was armed with a loaded rifle and refused repeated orders to put it down.

"They gave him at least two opportunities to disarm himself, but he continued to take an aggressive posture," Adolph tells KTRH News.  "At that time an office in the backyard opened fire on the young man, striking him twice.  The suspect died of his wounds shortly thereafter."

"We had hoped to de-escalate it to the point where nobody was hurt, but unfortunately that was not possible in this incident, and a man lost his life," says Adolph.

Isensee's father says his son was bi-polar and also suffered from general anxiety disorder.  The family doesn't blame police for protecting themselves.

"I heard them telling him to put the gun down, they said it at least two times, maybe three times," said Ted Isensee.  "My son said something, but I couldn't hear what he was saying, then two shots rang out."

The officer has been placed on three days administrative leave while the shooting is investigated.
