Police say an off-duty officer working security fired shots at a robbery suspect after he pulled out a box cutter.

The suspect was taken to Harris Methodist Hospital in serious condition.

No word on what led up to the shooting but police were responding to a report of a robbery in progress at a gas station near that same address.
