A Texas father fatally shot a 17-year-old boy early this morning, after catching the teen in bed with his 16-year-old daughter.
Neither the 55-year-old father or the dead boy have been identified yet as authorities in Harris County continue to investigate the shooting.
The father told police that he was woken up by one of his four children who said someone was in the house, which is located on the 22300 block of Bridgestone Ridge Dr.
He grabbed his handgun and went to investigate and found the teen in bed with his daughter.
At first, the daughter denied knowing the boy and an argument ensued between the stranger and the father when he wouldn’t listen to the father’s commands.
When the teen reached for something, the father shot and killed the boy. Authorities say the teen was unarmed.
The 16-year-old daughter later admitted to knowing the boy and letting him into the house.
Police responded to the incident around 2:30am after receiving a 911 call from a girl who said her father shot a man who was underneath her sister’s bed.
Authorities interviewed all four children at the home, and the father was taken to the hospital after complaining about a possible panic attack. It appears he was on several different medications.
The mom who was at work at the time of the shooting later showed up to drive her four children away in a minivan.
The investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed yet. The case will be referred to a grand jury.
