Resident shoots suspect during home invasion

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A home invasion ended in gunfire in a east Harris County apartment Thursday morning.

Deputies were called to a shooting at the Saddle Ridge Apartments on Woodforest just before 7am. When they arrived, they found out it was a home invasion.

Sgt. Gary Harrison says during that home invasion, the man who lives inside the apartment shot one of the suspects in self-defense. That young man was airlifted to Ben Taub Hospital.

Harrison tells us there were three suspects involved. One other was taken into custody. The third fled the scene once gunfire erupted.

Investigators are looking into whether these suspects were responsible for any earlier incidents in the area.
