Harris County, Texas

From the Houston Chronicle of May 12, 2004:

Homeowner wounded in gun battle with burglars

A northeast Harris County man was shot and wounded in a break-in at his home overnight but may have managed to wound one of his attackers before they fled, officials said.

Just before midnight, officials said two armed kicked in the door of a house on Hammermill near Tidwell. The homeowner armed himself to investigate the noise and exchanged gunfire with the men.

The homeowner, whose name has not yet been released, is being treated for a gunshot wound to the stomach.

Harris County Sheriff's Department detectives are now questioning a man who showed up at Ben Taub Hospital with a gunshot wound shortly after the shootout.
