Suspect fires gun at home, man inside shoots back

The man was transported to a local hospital but not with a gunshot wound

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — On Sunday morning around 10:30 A.M., a Corpus Christi man heard knocking on his door. When he answered, there was another man at the door.

Police said the suspect wanted to talk to someone in the home in the 3200 block of Virginia Street but that person was not available. The man then showed his gun as someone inside the home so he retreated inside.

Then, the suspect shot at a window which shattered the glass. The man inside of the home reportedly shot back but was injured by the loose glass. He fired at least one time, according to CCPD. 

The victim was transported to a nearby hospital with minor injuries. The suspect, however, is still on the run. 

Luckily, the home has surveillance cameras and CCPD said they will continue to investigate this incident. They ask if anyone has any information regarding this case to contact them at (361) 826-2600.
