Montgomery County deputies caught a home invasion suspect as he was being treated for a gunshot wound he suffered during the crime.
Adrian Granados-Yepez, 27, of Tomball was arrested at Memorial Hermann Hospital Jan. 28, in Houston, after deputies say he was shot by a Magnolia woman, after breaking into her home. The home invasion occurred in the 18700 block of Mink Lake Drive.
Deputies said that three men attempted to enter the home Jan. 25 , but fled after the 33-year-old mother shot Yepez.
The woman, who did not want to be identified, told deputies that she was putting her 6-year-old son to bed when she heard noises coming from her bedroom. She then ran into her living room, where she saw three masked men pointing a gun at her.
She told detectives that she then led the men to her bedroom, promising to get them money, where she retrieved her pistol and shot Yepez in the stomach. While Yepez and another man fled, a third suspect grabbed the woman's gun and kicked her, before running out of the house.
"Detectives continue to investigate the incident and are working to identify other suspects," Montgomery County Sheriff's Lt. Dan Norris said in a statement.
Detectives are asking that anyone with information call the Montgomery County Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-392-7867, the sheriff's office at 936-760-5800 or detectives Mullis and Hahs at 936-760-5876.
