HOUSTON A husband and wife were attacked Tuesday morning in a west Harris County home invasion.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. on Palton Springs Drive. Three armed men stormed in through the garage door, put a bag over the wife s head and shot the woman s husband twice.

I heard from my room what sounded like a cap gun shot, said Joseph Paz, a neighbor.

By the time deputies arrived at the scene, a family member had already taken the couple to a hospital. Deputies said the husband has non-life threatening injuries.

Now investigators are trying to figure out if the gunmen were after the family s money or something else.

Neighbors had nothing but good things to say about the family.

I would see them playing with the basketball, soccer, playing around in the cul-de-sac, said Paz.

Another neighbor described the family as quiet and friendly.

I m just appalled that something like this would happen so close to me, the neighbor said.
