Houston State Rep. Borris Miles, D-District 146, used a pistol to wound one of two men he told police were trying to steal materials from a house the lawmaker is building, police said.
Miles was at the construction site at 3742 MacGregor Way at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday when he heard a noise and spotted the two men, Houston police spokeswoman Johanna Abad said this morning.
“The man suffered a non-life threatening wound,” said Abad, adding that Miles is licensed to carry a concealed weapon.
The man who was shot was in Ben Taub Hospital this morning and police still were trying to identify the other suspect, Abad said.
No charges were filed in the case. Miles could not be reached for comment.
