HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - A family in northwest Harris County is working with police to understand why a man, wearing next to nothing, broke into their home and attacked them.

Three generations of the family were in the home around 2 a.m.Thursday when the suspect broke into the home. Investigators said the man was unarmed but when family members confronted him, he attacked. The homeowner was forced to shoot the suspect, who died at the scene.

Police cannot identify the intruder, but the family told detectives the man appeared disoriented.

As far as detectives can tell, the break-in appears completely random.

Not far from the house, police found a wrecked car abandoned in a ditch.

They believe the car belongs to the suspect.

It sure sounds like there's more to this story!
