Blind, drunk man shot entering wrong home

‘An intoxicated, visually impaired man entered the wrong northeast Harris County home early today and suffered minor wounds after the frightened homeowner fired a shotgun, officials said.

“It was not his residence,” said Lt. Michael Young of the Harris County Precinct 4 constable’s office. “The homeowner requested that this person leave and the interloper refused, insisting it was his house.”

When the confused man advanced on the homeowner, the homeowner fired a round of bird shot that grazed the man on his face and head, Young said.

The man, whose family told deputies he has been involved in similar incidents before, was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he remained this morning, Young said. The man lives nearby, he said.’
