HILL COUNTY (May 16, 2014) Authorities in Hill County were investigating Friday after an early-morning home invasion during which an elderly man and his wife were beaten and robbed and shots were fired.

Two men broke into the couple’s home at around 2:30 a.m. Friday off of County Road 2200 near Aquilla, beat up the residents and took phones, an iPad and other items, Hill County Sheriff Michael Cox said.

The elderly man had a gun, but the robbers took it from him, Cox said.

After the men left the house, the couple called a ranch hand who fired a shot in the air, Cox said, and then the robbers returned fire.

No one was hit, Cox said.

A 911 call was placed at around 3 a.m. Friday.

The names of the victims and information about their injuries weren’t immediately available.

No one has been arrested, Cox said.
