Man arrested in break-in, shootout

Harris County sheriff's detectives Tuesday arrested a man they said claimed to be a police officer during a home invasion that led to a shootout.

Marquis Gonsalves, 21, charged with burglary with intent to commit a felony, was held without bail in the May 11 home invasion in the 12900 block of Hammermill in northeast Harris County.

Detectives said Gonsalves and another man broke into the house after identifying themselves as police. Homeowner Ronnie Jones, 31, walked out of his bedroom and was shot and injured, but he shot one of the assailants, who fled.

Gonsalves was arrested at his home in the 7900 block of Talton.
