HOUSTON – A man jumped out of a second-story window to avoid being shot during a home invasion Saturday night in west Houston, police said.

According to the Houston Police Department, officers responded to a call of a shooting at 11:30 p.m. in the 6100 block of Antoine near Holly View. When police arrived at the apartment complex, they found a man lying on the ground.

The victim told officers that he was not shot, but that he had jumped out of his second-story window to avoid being shot.

Investigators said that two armed men knocked on the victim’s door. When he opened it, they shoved him into the apartment.

Fearing they were going to shoot him, the victim managed to run to the back bedroom and jumped out of the window, investigators said.

The two suspects fled the scene, police said.

The victim was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital Northwest in stable condition, police said.
