In contrast, Killed By Police has logged at least 91 people killed by police in the month of January alone. At least 1,106 people were killed in 2014, a number which calls into question the integrity of the FBI’s previous estimate of around 400 per year. Unlike the independent logging done by Killed By Police, the FBI collects their statistics only from reports voluntarily given to them by law enforcement agencies.

Investigators from the Specialized Investigations Division Homicide Detail were requested to the location and conducted an investigation. The investigation is ongoing.
According to the Harris County Attorney's Office, investigator Tony Yet was having dinner inside the Mien Tay Quan restaurant when a fight broke out among some other patrons.
Yet, who was eating with his own friends and off duty, escorted two of the other patrons out. He apparently broke up the fight.
Some time later, one of the men returned to the restaurant with a weapon. Investigators say the man fired into the restaurant from the parking lot. That's when Yet, who is a trained peace officer, fired back. The suspect was hit and killed. The investigator was not hurt. Nobody else in the restaurant was hurt.
