HOUSTON (AP) - Detectives say a suburban Houston homeowner shot and killed a woman he says was with two men who robbed him at his home.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office says in a statement that the incident happened about 5 p.m. Thursday. Deputies say they arrived to find the woman's body in the driveway of the house near a car she had driven there.

The homeowner says she and the men forced their way into his house, ordered him to lie on the floor and took some of his belongings. He told investigators that as the 3 left, he grabbed a shotgun and fired at them, hitting the woman as she entered her car. He says the men fled the scene in a green Chevrolet pickup truck.

No charges have been filed.
