Five teenagers, ranging from 14 to 17 years of age, believed to be responsible for at least two armed carjackings and one burglary of a home in northwest Harris County are now in custody.
During both carjackings the suspects shot their victims before stealing their vehicle. Both victims are expected to make a full recovery.
On Monday, February 10, 2014, deputies responded to a home in the 7200 block of Battle Hills Dr. after a woman reported having been carjacked by an armed suspect. The woman was loading items into her car in her garage when she was shot by the suspect who then drove off in her vehicle. The woman was taken to an area hospital and is expected to be ok.
Later that day deputies responded to a burglary in progress in the 6300 block of Bonnie Chase Ln. The homeowner was inside when she saw two men breaking in to her house. She hid in the closet and called police. When deputies arrived they arrested the two suspects still inside the house, and one outside. Deputies in the area also arrested two other suspects who were in the vehicle stolen from the woman on Battle Hills earlier that day.
The suspects are identified as Christopher Do, 17. The other four are minors ages 14, 15, and 16 (2). They are charged with aggravated robbery and burglary of a habitation.
A photo of Do is attached.
At least one of the suspects has admitted to shooting a man in his driveway on Friday, February 7 in the 19400 block of Cypress Canyon Dr., before stealing his vehicle. That victim is also expected to be OK.
