One killed, one injured in west Houston apartment burglary

A suspect in a west Houston burglary was shot and killed Sunday morning, and the man who shot him is recovering at a nearby hospital as Houston police look for two other burglars who tried to steal jewelry from an apartment.

An elderly woman living at The Crossing at Old Farm apartment complex at 2500 Old Farm Road woke up to her dogs barking around 5 a.m., and found a man standing next to her bed.

The suspect jumped on top of her and zip-tied her, before letting two other men into the home and ransacking the residence for jewelry, said Houston Police Department homicide detective Alexander Vinogradov. Police said the three burglars climbed a ladder behind the apartment complex and broke in through the balcony door.

Ten minutes after the suspects came into the apartment, the woman’s son returned home and shot at the burglars. In a “wild shootout” in the hallway, the son was shot twice and one of the suspects was fatally shot, Vinogradov said.

The three suspects are believed to be under the age of 25. One may have left through the balcony door, while another ran off as he chased the burglary victim’s son outside, police said.

Paramedics took the son to a nearby hospital, where he is in stable condition.

Neighbors said it’s possible the suspects also live in the apartment complex.
