A father fought off a pair of suspected teenage robbers who tried to break into his family's vehicle in northwest Harris County.
The shooting unfolded around midnight as the family was pulling unto their home, with two infants in the back seat.
According to the Harris County Sheriff Department, one of the suspects walked up to their SUV and opened one of the rear doors where a 1-year-old was strapped in.
That's when the father retrieved his weapon and shot at the suspects multiple times from inside the car. The wife was driving and drove away after the shooting to get away from the suspects.
A car pulled up after the shooting driven by an accomplice and took both suspects, 16-year-olds, to the hospital.
"One of the parents inside the vehicle, as the suspects were attempting to enter, one of the parents fired off several rounds and shot both of the male suspects," Sgt. J. Wheeler said. "They were transported to area hospitals."
According to Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, the teen suspects are both stable and in fair condition.
The investigation is ongoing. According to several Houston news sources, the family was shaken by the event, but doing "ok".
