DICKINSON, Texas — Authorities arrested a man who they allege was shot with his own weapon in a home-invasion robbery.

Authorities identified the man as Richard Charles Holcomb, 32, of Alvin. Holcomb remained jailed Monday on $250,000 bond on a charge of aggravated robbery, stemming from a 7:45 a.m. Sunday incident near Dickinson, the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

A man entered a house in the 200 block of Shady Bend Court, which is in an unincorporated area near Dickinson. During a struggle with the homeowner, the weapon went off twice, sheriff’s office Capt. Barry Cook said.
