According to KHOU, one suspect was shot and one is in custody after a violent home invasion and robbery attempt at a home in the Heights.

Doughbeezy, a local Houston rapper, revealed via Instagram that he was a victim (and a hero) of that home invasion which occurred Tuesday evening.  Read his account of events below:


My life was almost taken from me last night. Nothing or no one but God was watching over me, I’m suppose to be dead. When the gunman got instructed to shoot me, he froze. When they tried to kidnap me in my own car, I was able to fight my way out the car before being pistol whipped. After being pistol whipped, my friend and her family pulled up and we all got instructed to go in the house and that’s when God made a way for to break loose and make it back to my trunk for my pistol. If I never was able to break away for my trunk, I wouldn’t be here today telling you this story. Stop and take a second to thank God for very thing you have. And when you’re done, take a moment to tell your family and the people close to you that you love them. My daughter will be born in a week and if it wasn’t for God, I wouldn’t be here to see her to see her take her first breath. #Blessed
