Houston police say a pregnant woman shot and killed a man trying to break into her car.The shooting happened on Pinemont near Alabonson in northwest Houston last night. Investigators say a woman who is eight months pregnant saw a group of men breaking into a neighbor's car and then the crooks turned toward her vehicle.

"She looked out the window. She watched them break in to one car. And then, she watched as the males went over to her car. That's when she retrieved the gun and fired one shot at them," said Sgt C.D. Howard with the Houston Police Department.

The woman hit one of the men, killing him instantly. The others got away. The case is expected to be referred to a grand jury without charges.
