HOUSTON – A man shot and wounded a naked man he said was trying to break into his home Saturday afternoon in northwest Houston.

According to the Houston Police Department, the male suspect was banging on the front door and broke through a window at a home located in the 700 block of Marjorie.

After several verbal warnings, the resident inside the home pulled a gun and squeezed off several shots.

“After he broke the dude’s window, you know trying to unlock it... you got kids, wife, you know, he said he didn’t want to kill him so he shot him in the arm,” a neighbor said.

The neighbor said the intruder had been acting very erratically, and the man, who shot him, had tried to help him get out of the street earlier in the day. ‎

The shooter is not facing any charges. No one else was hurt during the incident.
