For hours, police combed for evidence at State Senator Borris Miles’ home on Houston’s south side.
Their investigation into a violent shooting and burglary comes after two armed men stole guns, jewelry and other items from the senator’s home.
Police say Miles’ grandfather returned home to find suspects inside the home around 5:30 p.m.
The suspects fired a shot but did not hit his grandfather.
Then they held a gun to his head for twenty minutes until another car came to pick them up.
A spokesperson for the senator said they’re just grateful he wasn’t hurt.
“I am incredibly thankful that my family is safe tonight,” Miles said, in a statement. “I want to thank HPD and Precinct 7 Constables for responding quickly to ensure my family and home were safe.”
Police do not have a good description of the suspects or the vehicle that picked them up.
They’re hoping that surveillance video in the area will help.
