HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A concerned neighbor was nearly run over right before he opened fire on two people suspected in a home invasion in north Harris County.
Officers say it all happened at a home on Forsythe Lane at Burnwood Lane near Spring.
An 80-year-old man was asleep on the second floor of a home when two people kicked in the back door and burglarized the home.
A neighbor confronted the two suspects as they were leaving through a back gate carrying Christmas presents and a flat-screen TV.
Deputies say the suspects dropped their loot and jumped inside a car before attempting to run the neighbor over. That is when he pulled a pistol out and shot twice into the vehicle.
The suspects fled the scene, causing minor damage when they slammed into a parked vehicle.
No injuries were reported, but Harris County Sheriff's deputies are checking local hospitals for gunshot victims.
