It happened just after 1 a.m. on the 2200 block of Naomi off Cambridge Street, not far from NRG Park.
According to HPD, the homeowner slept on the 2nd floor but woke up to hearing the back door glass shatter as the intruder entered the home.
The intruder went upstairs and opened the bedroom door.
At the time, the homeowner, who had a gun, shot the intruder in the neck, police say.
Officials say the intruder ran away and started banging on neighbors’ doors for help, saying he was shot. However, it was too late and he died at the scene.
The family, who live next door to where the shooting took place, told ABC13 the same intruder molested them around midnight when he was in their backyard, breaking belongings and turning on the hose.
The family also allege the alleged intruder keyed their car before walking next door and being shot.
Police say it’s unclear if the intruder was armed, but they don’t think the homeowner will be charged.
The homeowner was alone at the time of the shooting.
