Harris County mom with kids at home shot in home invasion, will survive

Law enforcement says a mother who was at home with her two kids was shot by a man demanding money from her in northwest Harris County.

This happened around 10:15 last night. Reportedly, the man knocked on the woman's door and when she answered, he demanded money and tried to force his way in. She fought with the man, who shot her several times.

The woman was taken to Ben Taub Hospital and is expected to survive. Her children are okay.

Investigators say it doesn't look like that anything was taken from the home, but they are still considering the incident a home invasion.

Deputies are hoping to get a better description of the alleged bad guy from the mother. They are also hoping to get help from surveillance video from the apartment complex.
