HOUSTON, Texas — A pair of Houston teens are hospitalized after being shot while attempting to rob a family, police said.


Sometime after midnight this morning, officers were dispatched to the 6800 block of Feather Creek Drive in response to a shooting, according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

Police said a family had just arrived home when two male teens walked up to their SUV and opened the rear door.

Sitting inside, was the couple's 1-year-old child.

Police said the father responded by shooting several rounds at the teens, striking both suspects.

Both wounded teens were taken to hospitals by private vehicles.

They are said to both be in stable condition.
