A man had his eyes on the stars when a group of crooks tried to rob him on his driveway. Police say the man was looking through a professional telescope on his driveway on West 32nd near Ashland in northwest Houston. Three or four men in a car suddenly pulled up and demanded his wallet at gunpoint. The homeowner fought back and was shot by a pellet gun.

The robbers drove off empty-handed, but police believe those same men robbed someone else a few minutes later.
