A man has been hospitalized after he was shot in the leg by two suspects who attempted to break into his apartment.

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A man was injured after he exchanged gunfire with two people who attempted to break into his apartment in north Houston.

Police say two people jumped over the fence of an apartment complex on Greens Parkway at Fall Lake Drive after 10:30pm and attempted to kick in the man's front door.

The resident grabbed his gun and started shooting at the suspects as they tried to make entry into his apartment.

The suspects fired back, striking the victim in the leg. He was taken to Ben Taub hospital for treatment.

The man was unable to give police a description of the suspects since they never made it inside the apartment.

Police are not sure whether the suspects were injured in the gun fight since investigators were unable to find a blood trail at the scene.
