One suspect is dead and two others injured after a Houston man shot them Friday morning as they attempted to break into his home in northwest Harris County. According to KRPC-TV, police said the men were armed as they approached the victim’s house, where several children were inside, and fired upon the homeowner before fleeing.
In a similar crime just three days earlier, KRPC reported, three armed home invaders forced two women to lie on a bed as they ransacked the room looking for cash, and fired a shot to gain entry to a locked room in the residence before escaping. Police haven’t said yet whether the two crimes are related.
Last month, in another Houston home invasion, KHOU reported that a man broke into a residence through a window before murdering six children and two adults there.
