Husband shoots at men attempting to rob his wife in west Harris County

KATY, Texas — One person was taken to a hospital with gunshot wounds after a man shot at three possible robbery suspects in Katy.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to a weapons disturbance at 3099 Fry Road on Saturday afternoon.

Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said two or three men tried to rob a woman when her husband was able to retrieve a pistol and shoot at them. One of the men was hit and taken to a hospital, where he is being treated, according to Gonzalez.

The shooter remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators, Gonzalez said.

Deputies suspect this is a “jugging” case. They believe the crooks followed the couple from a bank to the Randall’s grocery parking lot, where the crime happened.

“She was extremely intoxicated. She came to the porch,” Baltimore County police Cpl. Shawn Vinson said.

Police said the woman pushed the man and forced her way into the house, where he shot her.

“He was able to retrieve a weapon and did shoot the woman one time in the lower body,” Vinson said.

The woman was taken to a hospital for treatment. She is expected to survive, police said.

“We are doing a continuing investigation at this point. The main thing is that the suspect continues to receive medical treatment. Once that treatment’s completed, we will consider filing burglary charges at that point for third-degree burglary. We will review the case with the state’s attorney’s office just to make sure the actions of the homeowner were legal and justified,” Vinson said.
