TX: Houston father shoots and kills boy in teen daughter’s room

A Houston father shot and killed a teenage boy he found in the room of his 16-year-old daughter in the pre-dawn hours of Thursday, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said.

The father heard noises coming from the room and went to investigate. Upon finding the 17-year-old boy with his daughter, the father got into a fight with the boy, and “the homeowner, who was armed, shot the male once,” the office said. Full Article

    This is a needless tragedy. A 17-year-old boy is dead, killed by an angry father. We will watch with great interest while the State of Texas decides how to mete justice in this case.

    This article has so few details. It’s hard to know whether the boy was a guest of the girl or was he an intruder since the girl changed her story? Did the boy attack/lunge at the father? Was the kid apologetic and did the father decide to shoot him because he was “messing around” consensually with his daughter?
    Or did the girl lie and say she didn’t know him, then daddy freaks and clips him, then daughter freaks and admits she knows him?

      Well said G4Change.

      Here’s another report:
      A Houston-area father fatally shot a 17-year-old boy who was inside his teen daughter’s bedroom early Thursday morning, MyFoxHouston.com reported.

      The father, who was not identified, was notified by one of his children that there was someone in his 16-year-old daughter’s room, the report said. He reportedly found his daughter in bed with the teen.

      The confrontation occurred around 2:20 a.m. The father had a gun and asked the teen to identify himself, police said, according to the report. His daughter reportedly told her father that she did not know the teen and that the two were not in bed.

      The father said he told the teen not to move, but reportedly saw the teen reach for something, at which point police say the father opened fire. The teen did not have a gun. His daughter later confessed that she did indeed know the teen, the report said.

      “You just feel terrible for the families,” one neighbor told the station. “You just kind of reflect on both of these families’ lives have changed forever.”

      The father was taken by ambulance from the home for treatment of an unrelated medical situation. So far no arrests have been made, but detectives told the station that they are going to refer the case to a grand jury.

    Vigilante justice; the false pride of extreme religious fundamentalism; a mental illness by the father? It could be anything but a young life is immediately snuffed
    out amidst the frenzy of morality and shame.

    A youthful mistake that ends up with the boy paying the ultimate price.
    May he rest in peace.

    It would seem to me that the problem in this story has nothing to do with teenagers or sex or the registry, but gun control in this country or lack thereof. Adding the letters TX to this headline was almost unnecessary as I would have bet money on this having happened in Texas or Florida.
