Police say they have found paint splashes and believe that the group of teenagers are firing paintball guns at the family's house, rather than using firearms as the father suspected.

& # 39; They believed they were – that their house was being shot at & # 39 ;, said Sergeant Joshua Horn of the Houston Police Station I LOVE. & # 39; The homeowner, the father, came out to apologize, approached a suspect who was standing outside here. I believed he was a threat, afraid of his safety, firing a round at him. & # 39;

The father would also have shot additional laps on the 19-year-old victim's vehicle, Horn added.

Police think the man's 17-year-old son might have been the target of the group and said they wanted to fight him & # 39;
