MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas (KPRC/CNN) - A man accused of trying to use a stolen credit card is in police custody was shot at outside a Houston-area mall.

Deputies had followed Washington outside the mall after he allegedly tried to use a stolen credit card at several stores and was denied at all of them.

Washington then surrendered.

No one was injured.
