HOUSTON – A homeowner shot and killed an intruder Friday afternoon, according to Harris County deputies.

It happened at an apartment along Dominion Park near Kuykendahl just before 1 p.m.

Investigators said the man was in his bed when he heard loud noises at his front door. He went to check it out and saw two strangers barging in so he grabbed his gun and took aim. He shot and killed one of the men.

"No one deserves to get killed," said neighbor Tasha Hopkins. "But if you do wrong there's a price to pay for it."

The other suspect may have been wounded, but managed to run away.

Deputies said a man showed up at an area hospital with a gunshot wound, but they have not confirmed if that was the second suspect.
