Caught on camera: Man shot at after confronting tire theft suspects in NW Harris County neighborhood

The suspects have yet to be caught and deputies have no information to identify them.

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — Harris County Constable Precinct 4 deputies are hoping you can help them catch two suspects who they say shot at a man who caught them stealing tires off his neighbor's vehicle.

This happened around 5:30 a.m. Friday in the Cypress Hill subdivision. 

The man said he was alerted by his Ring camera that there was movement in the area and when he went to check his front yard, he saw two men stealing his neighbor's tires and wheels, according to deputies. 

The Ring camera shows the moment the man confronted the suspects.

"You're getting in your car right now? I suggest you do that," the man could be heard telling the suspects. 

Seconds later, gunshots were heard and you see the man running back to his front door to escape the bullets.

Deputies said the suspects shot at the man before driving off in a vehicle that appeared to be a late model Chevrolet Equinox. 

Pct. 4 deputies said they are now looking for two suspects, who they say were trying to steal tires and wheels.

“I was up at 6 this morning, and it happened at 5:30 a.m.," said Sasha Brotherton, a neighbor who lives down the street in the Cypress Hill subdivision. “Absolutely scary. I hope they find these guys and put an end to this. Luckily, he was able to get a good picture of the vehicle, so hopefully it’s not long."

KHOU 11 spoke to the homeowner who was shot at. He’s OK, and neighbors are hoping someone will call Pct. 4 or Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-TIPS so they can put this all behind them.
