Sheriff's investigators are looking for the one who got away early Wednesday morning following a north Harris County shoot-out that left two men dead.

Detectives say that 24-year-old Djuan Jones had just gotten home along the 19900 block of Cypresswood Glen Road when a pair of men accosted him outside his front door. The two men forced Jones into the house, authorities say, but Jones was able to grab a revolver.

Next thing you know, it was an all-out gun-fight.

At about 2:15 a.m., deputies received a call concerning gunshots and sped over to Jones' home. There, they found the homeowner, dead inside the residence. One of the two attackers also got it good and was lying on the sidewalk across the street, dead.

The other attacker made it out alive, authorities say, and is on the run. Detectives do not yet have his name but continue investigating.

Anyone with information about this case can call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
