Grandfather shot while 2-year-old grandson was home was targeted in north Houston, police say


HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A grandfather is in critical condition after being shot twice during a home invasion Thursday night in north Houston.

Detectives say the man’s 2-year-old grandson was also inside when intruders barged into the house on Carby near Foxridge.

According to Houston police, four men kicked in the front door, shot the grandfather in the head and shoulder, then grabbed a safe and ran away.

Officials say the intruders brought a sledgehammer to the scene, but just kicked the door open.

The victim’s wife came home 30 minutes later to find her husband wounded. The child was not hurt.

The grandfather was taken to Ben Taub Hospital in critical condition.

At this time, police believe the man was targeted as the safe had a large amount of cash.


ABC13’s Charly Edsitty obtained surveillance video of the home invasion showing the intruders who are still on the run.
