HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- Deputies are investigating a drive-by shooting at a home with children inside in Atascocita North according to the Harris County Pct. 4 Constable's Office.

Deputies responded to a shooting at the 19900 block of Faye Oaks Drive on Monday afternoon.

Investigators said the homeowner called for help after multiple gunshots.

Two children, ages 11 and 14, were inside.

"Scared to even go in, to even go outside and play. I think this was just warning shots," said homeowner Lazaro Haydar. "If they were going to break in, they would have already broken in."

There were no reported injuries. This is a developing story.
