WATCH: Deputies say three people have been detained for questioning, but surprisingly have not been cooperative.

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- A groom is in the hospital after being shot on his wedding day.

Around 11:30 p.m. Thursday, Harris County sheriff's deputies found the groom shot in the chest outside a home on Anna Green off Queenston and Spencer in northwest Harris County.

The groom was flown to Memorial Hermann hospital. Officials say he is expected to survive.

Deputies noted that witnesses to the shooting were not cooperating, including the bride.

"Three people at the house have been detained so we can get witness statements, Captain John Shannon said.

Investigators believe a person who was invited to the wedding party got into an altercation with the groom. That person then shot the groom and fled the scene, deputies say.

HCSO is still looking for the shooter.
