A Texas dad shot two teenagers who tried to enter his family's car in northwest Harris County while two infants were in the rear seat, KTRK-TV reported.
What are the details?
Investigators said the family had just pulled up to their home in the 6800 block of Feather Creek Drive when a pair of 16-year-old males tried to enter the car through the rear doors, deputies told the station.
Sheriff Ed Gonzalez tweeted that the suspects opened one of the vehicle's rear doors.
But the dad fired multiple times at the suspects from inside the car while his wife drove away, KTRK said.
Security video from a nearby home recorded the incident, the station said, adding that one teen suspect was seen running away while the other was on the ground.
Everything unfolded just after midnight Monday, KHOU-TV reported.
Deputies said the suspects sustained gunshot wounds and were taken to a hospital in private vehicles, KTRK reported.
Gonzalez told the station that both teen suspects are stable and in fair condition.
KTRK said it spoke with the family, who said they were doing OK but didn't want to go on camera.
Video from the scene shows a bullet hole in the car's side, stemming from the shot the father took through his car's back window.
