CONROE, Texas (AP) — Authorities say a woman in a north Houston suburb has shot and killed another woman who was trying to break into her home.

Montgomery County Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Wayne Mack says 38-year-old Marci Green was pronounced dead at a Conroe hospital early Sunday after she was shot around midnight.

Deputies say the woman inside the house told them Green first tried to get in through the front door of her Conroe-area home, then she shot her as Green went around to the back of the home and tried to get in through a door there.

The shooting remains under investigation.
