HOUSTON – A man is dead after a home invasion in northwest Houston Monday night, according to the Houston Police Department.
Officers responded to reports of a shooting in the 6500 block of Thornwall Street around 6:28 p.m.
HPD Detective Lance Osborn said two men were at the home during the time of the invasion. One of the victims was working on his car when detectives said four suspects approached him and forced him inside the home.
The second victim, a 31-year-old man who police said was already inside, was then fatally shot by one of the suspects. Osborn said the suspects ransacked the home before leaving the scene.
A search is underway as investigators try to find the suspects. Police said the men had their faces covered and were seen in a black or grey hatchback that is believed to be a Toyota Prius. The vehicle has dark rims and officers said they were advised that at least one seat had a pink cover on it.
Anyone with information on this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at (713) 308-3600 or speak anonymously to Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-TIPS.
