At least four suspects were seen on camera footage running toward the victim's home. Police said they fired at least 25 bullets at the east Houston home.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A 58-year-old woman is in the hospital after multiple suspects shot at least 25 bullets at an east Houston home, ultimately hitting her in the chest, police said.

It happened at about 5 a.m. Wednesday at 7012 San Angelo Street, near Denver Harbor.

At least four suspects are seen on camera footage walking and/or running to the victim's home. That's when Det. Damion Polite said they opened fire all around the home.

When officers arrived at the scene, the detective said they found the woman in between the living room and her bedroom with a gunshot wound. She was taken to the hospital in critical condition but is reportedly stable.

The victim's husband and grandson were also inside the home at the time of the incident, police said. They were not injured.

There are different caliber bullet casings at the scene, which police said suggests multiple guns were used by multiple suspects.

It's still unclear if this shooting was targeted due to the ongoing crime issue in the area, according to Det. Polite.
