HOUSTON – A suspect home invader was shot early Sunday morning in north Houston.
Captain Jack Shannon says the incident took place around 3 a.m. at a home located at 306 W Mount Houston Road.
The residents of the home say a man surpassed their 6-foot tall fence and made multiple attempts to break through the front entrance of the home. This prompted the homeowner to fire through the door. The suspect was struck twice and left with a gunshot wound to each leg.
Deputies arrived and requested the suspect be transported to a nearby trauma center for his injuries. He is expected to survive.
Detectives arrived to take over the investigation.
