HOUSTON - A woman was shot and killed after masked men kicked in the door to her apartment in north Harris County, authorities say.
Deputies responded to the 22700 block of Imperial Valley Drive around 1:45 a.m. Thursday in reference to a home invasion.
When they arrived, deputies found a woman dead from a gunshot wound inside of an apartment.
According to the sheriff’s office, investigators learned that the door had been kicked in by two or three men who were armed and demanding money. They were described only as Black males wearing masks.

The suspects fled the scene.
Authorities say there were three other adults and a 4-month-old baby inside of the apartment at the time of the deadly shooting. Investigators are speaking with witnesses and gathering surveillance video.
