SPRING, Texas – A couple experienced “scary moments” when an armed intruder broke into their home in Spring Friday, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.
Deputies were called to a home in the 8400 block of Glenn Elm for reports of a home invasion.
According to Gonzalez, a man forced entry into the home, and as the homeowner approached him, he fired a shot toward the homeowner’s head. Gonzalez said the homeowner was grazed by the bullet but was able to get out and call deputies. A woman inside the home remained hiding, HCSO said.
