HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -- A home invasion suspect accidentally shot another suspect during a scuffle with a Harris County homeowner, deputy constables said Monday.

Pct. 4 Captain Stewart said it happened at a home in the 2400 block of Green Knoll.

Three men broke into the home, and the homeowner grabbed his shotgun to defend himself.

Authorities said the homeowner got into a scuffle with one of the suspects, and the suspect’s gun went off. The bullet struck one of the two other suspects who broke in.

He was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, but the other two got away, deputies said.

The homeowner was not hurt.
