Homeowner shoots 19-year-old burglar in the head

- A homeowner shot a teen in the head, who broke into his garage early Friday morning.

It happened after 1 a.m. on Park Valley near Park Brush in Katy.

Police say the suspect is a 19-year-old male.

He's accused of breaking into the garage and a car that was inside.

The homeowner, who was inside the home with his wife, heard the break-in. He grabbed his gun and confronted the burglar.

The suspect lunged at the homeowner, so the homeowner fired one time, shooting the suspect in the head.

Police say the suspect ran away, but was found hiding behind an air conditioning unit a few house away.

A K-9 unit found him, and he was transported by Lifeflight to Memorial Hermann in serious condition.
