Two armed suspects are on the loose after a botched home invasion in Harris County, Texas.

According to KHOU, the homeowner told police he was sleeping in his home located on Maplewick Drive in the Lakewood Grove subdivision at 12:30 a.m. when the two suspects kicked in his front door.

That’s when the quick-thinking homeowner grabbed his home defense weapon and confronted the intruders.

“It’s our understanding he was quite scared and terrified, in fear of his life. He discharged his weapon, and as they retreated, they shot back,” said Harris County Precinct 4 Assistant Chief Mark Herman.
