A teenager is in the hospital after being shot when he answered a knock at the door in north Houston last night.

The 16-year-old boy was home alone at an apartment on Gentry near James.

Police say he opened the door and a gunman shot him and ran away. The teen was rushed to the hospital.

Authorities say he told investigators he thinks the shooter is connected to a girl who got into a fight with his sister last week.
