Burglars open fire on homeowner in northwest Houston
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- It was a close call for a northwest Houston homeowner who was attacked by burglars. They opened fire on him.
The crooks came after the homeowner just before noon on Larsten near Brooktree. Houston police tell us the homeowner had just driven up to his driveway when he noticed something was not right.
We're told the homeowner saw three men leaving his home just as he was arriving. One of the suspects fired at least four shots. But luckily, police say, the homeowner was not hit.
Eyewitness News was there as the victim reenacted what he saw to a police officer. Authorities tell us they are now looking for two black males and one Hispanic male in connection with this armed robbery.
We reached out to the homeowner but he refused to talk to us.
Neighbors in the Shadow Oaks subdivision tell us this is a rather quiet area. They are surprised something like this happened so close to home.
Again, Houston police are looking for three suspects. We're told they left in a silver Buick.
