Police are checking area hospitals for a man who may have been shot while allegedly burglarizing cars at a local gun range.
A man told Harris County sheriff’s deputies he saw someone breaking into his car about 6 p.m. on Thursday outside a shooting range in the 11300 block of the Eastex Freeway.
The owner told deputies he fired at least four shots at the stranger because it appeared he had a weapon in his hand, authorities said.
He fired at least two more shots when the burglar fled in a waiting Chrysler sedan. The man told deputies he may have struck the back window, officials said.
