KATY, Texas (AP) — A 29-year-old suburban Houston man has survived being shot nine times in a robbery outside his home.

Janie Davis says she found her son, Chris Daniels, lying in the driveway and covered with blood a week ago outside their home in Katy, west of Houston. She tells Houston television station KPRC that Daniels told her he was smoking outside the home's garage when two men walked up and demanded his wallet. He was shot during the ensuing struggle.

Daniels, a father of three who works as a diesel mechanic, is hospitalized with leg and arm wounds. Doctors also have had to remove his spleen and one of his kidneys.

Harris County sheriff's deputies have some home surveillance video to possibly help them track down the attackers.


This story has been corrected to show attack occurred last week.
