shootingHOUSTON – There are more questions than answers right now; a suspected home burglar shot to death by the homeowner.

Authorities gathered at the home Tuesday afternoon on the 5000 block of Brooklawn in Northwest Harris County. But the shooting didn`t happen in the afternoon, it happened the night before.

Officials say the homeowner told them that two men broke into the house around 2am. He fired shots, and the suspected burglars jumped out a window on the second floor. He didn`t call police, instead he went back to bed. The following morning, he went to work. When he got home, that`s when he discovered the body.

And there could be a twist to the story. The homeowner told authorities he think the body could be his son.

Authorities continue to investigate.
