HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – Deputies say two brothers were shot during a home invasion at an apartment in northwest Harris County overnight.

The crime happened at The Commons at Vintage Park complex in the 9700 block of Cypresswood Drive.

Deputies responded to reports of a robbery and found one of the brothers had a gunshot wound to a finger and the other to his leg. One of the victims was said to be a juvenile. Both were taken to the hospital and are expected to be okay.

A woman, believed to be the victims’ mother, was at the home as well. She was not hurt.

The investigation is still underway, but deputies later confirmed the robbery and shooting may be drug related. Authorities say they found "baggies of pot" inside the apartment.

All four suspects fled the scene.
