Houston police say a group of thieves broke into a house and forced a resident into a closet so they could ransack the place.

The closet chosen during the Tuesday afternoon home invasion was the one where the resident kept his guns.

Houston police Sgt. Jerri Brandon said the man, now armed, confronted the thieves and exchanged shots with them, wounding one and flushing all three from the home.

The wounded intruder collapsed down the street with gunshot wounds to a shoulder and leg. The other two fled in a pickup truck.

The resident was not wounded.
