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.

I’m sorry, but I can’t help but chuckle at this.

“I don’t know who he is daddy!”

“Get out of my house!”

*perp reaches for something*

*blam blam*

“No, daddy! That was my boyfriend!”

So for the rest of her natural life, that girl has to know that her lie caused another man’s death.

The 16 year old girl later admitted to investigators that she did know the boy and had let him into the home.

And now he's dead. She should have admitted what she had done.

And he should have had enough sense not to get into an argument with an enraged father.

Yes, not guilty since the daughter later admitted she knew the boy and let him in. Babies makin’ babies....

Obviously the father was not a Muslim or he would have shot his daughter instead.

Glad you’re so overjoyed at the fact that a 17 year old kid got shot and killed because he was screwing his girlfriend. I can’t really blame the father, but I wouldn’t exactly be jumping for joy.

The reaction to this story (for married men) might very well depend on whether they have or had a teenaged daughter.

“I don’t know who he is”

homicide case closed.

Now... the daughter IS probably guilty of some law relating to causing the death of another.

Screwing his girlfriend?

No, he was screwing this man’s little girl.

Good riddance to both bad and stupid rubbish.

What you say to the kid taking your daughter out:

“You WILL have her home by ten, boy. I’m not afraid to go back to prison.”

When you read the description, this really could be a pure case of a dad shooting a (seeming) rapist who threatened him.

Being woken at 2am by one of the other kids and being told someone was in the house, and the daughter declaring the intruder as a stranger who broke in and of course was attacking her.

Sad story.

He was 17. She was 16. She invited him in. And he DESERVES to be dead in your opinion?

It would be one thing if the guy was 25. He was 17. She was 16. She invited him in. To me, his death is not something to be overjoyed about.

This is not so cut and dry. Don’t think deadly force was appropriate in this case. Dad should have stood far enough away from the boy. And really, what dad couldn’t figure out the boy was invited in by his daughter if he was hiding under the bad?

Not first degree murder, but at least voluntary manslaughter.

Your point is a good one. These are teenage kids. They do some inexplicably stupid stuff now and then. I know I did my fair share and learned and lived. I don't think I can fault the father based on the story given. The daughter may be in some trouble. This is a tragedy for all involved but I'm not sure if anyone goes to jail for it.

Certainly the teenage boy should have been exceedingly polite, respectful, conciliatory, apologetic and obedient to the father. He may have immediately suspected his daughter of lying about knowing who he was or why he was there. His reaction to her denial of knowing him may have ultimately been his undoing when the father went into protection beast mode.

Morally, yes. Legally? I'm not so sure.

It sounds like the father had the perp at gunpoint and had told him not to move. The father claims that he fired because the boy moved as if he was reaching for something. Although the lie certainly didn't help the boy at all, his inability to remain perfectly still while being held a gunpoint in a home in which he was not a welcomed guest by the owner, could in fact have directly resulted in his demise.

So this lying little trollop is is responsible for getting this kid killed. If she had admitted here wrong doing and interceded, the boy would probably still be alive.

I have the feeling she will feel little remorse over this. It seems to be the way of things with today's youth.

Yup.

Yessir, yessir, yessir, yessir, yessir, yessir...

...as one quickly removes oneself from the girl’s bed, bedroom, the house, and then the neighborhood, is the only way to go in that situation.

We don’t know the details to give us the perfect scenario, but jumping under the bed when the homeowner comes into a bedroom with a gun wouldn’t be so surprising, if you are trapped.

This should be fairly easy for the grand jury to figure out if a terrible mistake happened, or if dad took liberties to kill the boy.

If he murdered the boy, then I hope they get him.

I wouldn't go that far. I think this will, as said above, stay with her forever. She never thought through the consequences, she just lied.

I hope it plays out that way. However, playing devils advocate, it won’t shield the family from wrongful death. Daughter let the boy in, so the family is liable.
