HOUSTON, TEXAS — Police say a mentally disturbed man shot his cousin in face at their home in the 11000 block of Lafferty Oaks Street.
"The family said he had been mumbling a lot and hallucinating over the last couple of days," said HPD Sgt. T. L. Sarton. "For reasons we don’t know, he took out a shotgun and shot our victim in the face."
The victim was taken to Ben Taub hospital in critical condition.
Family members were able to get shotgun away from the suspect and they turned it over to firefighters.
When police arrived on the scene, they spotted the shooting suspect walking down the street.
He has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
