HOUSTON -

A homeowner shot at a man he claimed was trying to break into his pickup, police said.

Houston police said the man heard noises outside of his home on 5th Street and Columbia Street around 1 a.m. Monday.

The homeowner grabbed a gun and saw a man breaking into his truck, investigators said. He fired one shot, which scared the suspect away.

When police arrived, they searched the area and found a man matching the suspect's description. He was arrested. 

It is unclear if the suspect is connected to any other break-ins in the area.
