Mom shot at home with 2 young kids inside after answering door in NW Harris County
A mother home with her two children was shot by a man demanding money from her in northwest Harris County, investigators say.
It happened around 10:15 p.m. Monday at the Trails of Windfern apartment complex on Windfern near Summer Harvest.
Authorities told reporters the man knocked on the woman’s door and when she answered, he demanded money and tried to barge in.
She fought with the man, who shot her several times.
The woman called 911 herself after being shot. She was taken to Ben Taub Hospital and is expected to survive.
Her children are okay.
It’s unknown at this time if the shooting happened in front of her kids or where they were in the apartment.
Local media was there as authorities carried the children out of their home.
Investigators say it doesn’t appear that anything was taken, but they are still considering the incident a home invasion.
Deputies are hoping to get a better description of the alleged shooter from the mother. They also plan to pull surveillance video from the apartment complex.
