HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Three family members were shot during a violent home invasion that took place in northwest Harris County.

The home invasion happened at a home located on Fairway Drive, in the gated community of Heron Lakes Estates at around 8:30 p.m. Monday. Investigators stated that the father and his son were having a beer inside their garage. It was then they were surrounded by three armed men.

Those armed men began attacking the 47-year-old father and 21-year-old son while the third armed man went inside their home attempting to rob a woman who was upstairs. The woman told the suspect that they didn’t have a safe or any cash in the house.

One of the armed men shot the father and son. Additional reports indicate that a third male family member was  shot. The suspects all escaped in a white Toyota pickup.

Although the son was treated at a hospital  for his wounds and released, the father who suffered a gunshot in the lung, remained in critical condition.

The family is one that well-known; they own several gas stations. Authorities believe that the family may have been part of a plot to get money.
