Homicide investigators are gathering evidence after a father shoots and kills a teenage boy he found in his daughter’s bedroom.
A spokesperson for the Harris County Sheriff’s office said Deputy constables from pct 4 responded to a 911 call around 2:20 a.m. about a shooting in the Bridgestone Lake Subdivision in Northwest Harris County.
Police tell FOX 26 reporter John Donnelly that the father was notified that there was someone in his daughter’s bedroom by one of his other children.
The father then went into the girl’s bedroom and discovered the 17 year old male in bed with his 16 year old daughter. The daughter denied knowing who the boy was.
A confrontation between the father and boy started. The boy apparently wasn’t listening to the father’s commands and reached for something. It ended with 17 year old being shot and killed at the scene.
The 16 year old girl later admitted to investigators that she did know the boy and had let him into the home.
The father’s was taken by ambulance from the home for treatment of an unrelated medical situation. So far no arrests have been made.
