An investigation is underway after two would-be robbery suspects were reportedly shot in north Harris County Monday, deputies said.

HOUSTON – An investigation is underway after two attempted robbery suspects in their teens were reportedly shot in northwest Harris County Monday, deputies said.

It happened in the 6800 block of Feather Creek Drive around 12:04 a.m. when a husband and wife were arriving home with two babies in their back seat.

When the family’s SUV was coming to a stop, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said the two 16-year-old suspects approached the vehicle and attempted to open the back door where the couple’s 1-year-old child was sitting.

Investigators said the father pulled out a weapon and fired shots, hitting both of the suspects. The wife, who deputies said was driving, sped away to get away from the suspects. The suspects were then picked up by someone and driven away from the scene, investigators said.

According to deputies, the two suspects were later transported to a local hospital by a private vehicle. They are reportedly in stable condition.

Deputies said no one else was injured in the incident. The investigation is still ongoing.
