SUGAR LAND, Texas (KTRK) -- A suspect has been shot after an attempted to break in at a home in a Richmond subdivision on Saturday evening, the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office said.

The incident happened in the Veranda subdivision in the 24100 block of Ayers Smith Trail just before 5 p.m.

According to sheriff deputies, the suspect was flown to the hospital, where their condition is unknown. Officials did not elaborate on who the suspect was reportedly shot by.

Officials believe that more than one person was attempting to enter the residence.

All occupants who were inside at the time are said to be OK, officials said.

Residents tell ABC13 that it was a shock to come home to police lights and sirens.

"I am a little scared because we never see so many police cars or police officers here," a neighbor who just gave her first name, Amy, said.

Officials said the surronding area is safe, but ask residents to remain aware as the investigation continues.

"Unfortunately, crime is on the rise, so we always have to be very vigilant, and careful and aware of our surroundings at all times," Michelle Domengoni with the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office said.
