HARRIS COUNTY - A man is in serious but stable condition after being shot in the head just as he and his family rang in the New Year early Tuesday morning in north Harris County.

The shooting occurred just after midnight in the 2000 block of Hartwick Road.

Family members said the man was shot after another man standing next to fire a gun into the air to celebrate the New Year. Police said the bullet ended up hitting the man in the forehead and exited through the back of his head.

Two men were taken in for questioning, but no charges are expected to be filed in the shooting.

The shooting victim was taken to Ben Taub Hospital where he is undergoing surgery Tuesday morning.
