Harris County sheriff's deputies in Texas are investigating after a father shot a 17-year-old boy whom he found in his teenage daughter's bedroom.
Officials said Friday the 55-year-old father has not been arrested and investigators will ultimately hand over their report to the grand jury to consider possible charges.
According to KHOU-TV in Houston, the incident began when the girl's brother went to say good night to his 16-year-old sister and saw a pair of feet sticking out from under the bed. The brother alerted their father, who went into the bedroom to investigate.
When the father confronted the boy -- identified as Johran McCormick -- his daughter denied knowing who McCormick was or why he was there. The father called 911 about 2:30 a.m., police said, and a confrontation with McCormick ensued.
According to KHOU, the father told sheriffs deputies that he saw McCormick drop his hands and he interpreted that as an attempt to grab something to attack him, so he shot the boy once.

“I felt threatened.” always, always, always works to get a cop off for shooting one of us.

Likely won’t be charged
Every father knows exactly what the boys who date their daughters are thinking because they used to be boys.
Yeah. “I felt threatened by that miniature french poodle who came over to sniff my ankle, so I blew it in half. And then the owner looked at me in a threatening way, so...”. But in this case the daughter said she didn’t know who the guy was under her bed. Although that ranks high on the BS meter, you never know. Now I’m uncertain which situation I should have nightmares about.
Another good reason not to :;&$;:/;:$)/,()/ outside marriage.
Poor kid, either way. A bit extreme.
Let this be a lesson.
1) Don’t fsck 16yo girls in their own bedrooms when their parents are home.
2) When little Susie’s (whose file system you’ve been checking) Dad had a gun on you IN HIS OWN HOUSE ... you’d best act real respectful.
3) Seriously ... don’t fsck 16yo girls. ESPECIALLY not in their home when everybody else is there.
4) Stupidity is supposed to hurt.
It was a black father shooting a black boy he found in bed with his black daughter otherwise the boy’s black momma would have a call in to Black Justice League and the Trayvonistas would be marching in the streets.
I begin tucking him into bed and he tells me, “Daddy, check for monsters under my bed.” I look underneath for his amusement and see him, another him, under the bed, staring back at me quivering and whispering, “Daddy, there’s somebody on my bed.”
You're right. About 15 other times. Wonder why this story is so fascinating to Freepers as to be posted so many times?
I guess they're right when they say, "If it bleeds, it leads."
A black father? At home? Protecting his family?
/ sarcasm more or less
This is really stupid and there should have been a way out of it well short at killing somebody. If I’m on the jury this guy is gonna do at least some time.
Hopefully there won’t even be a trial
Well .. I guess I saw this in a movie somewhere, but the dad of the 16 year old tells the kid he doesn’t mind going back to prison for murder.
My daughter, even before she is 16, knows I will dispatch the fellow so she wont try it alternatively she don’t plan on a future with him....
The LAT reporting this Houston incident? Where is the Crock O’ Bull on this?
Seems to be a lot of activity for 2:30am on a school night.
Is it spring break?
Some boy comes into your daughters room, and you execute the kid for it?
What if she really did love the kid? You want to kill the boy that loves your daughter and she loves him?
No dad wants to see their daughter deflowered, but holy cow Batman. Kill the kid outright?
Mother of teen shot to death while hiding in girls bedroom says ‘he didnt deserve to die like that’
The grieving mother of 17-year-old Johran McCormick, who deputies say was shot to death after confronted in a 16-year-old girl’s bedroom early Thursday morning, says the Houston man who killed her son should have thought twice about killing a child.
An unknown male under the daughters bed, girl says she does not know him, trespassers like that should be shot
“No dad wants to see their daughter deflowered, but holy cow Batman. Kill the kid outright?”
And if she lied?
Sure he did ... sneaking around in a girl's bedroom ... at night ... boys who get caught doing that, need to sit down, shut up, make absolutely NO moves, and wait for the cops to haul their sorry ass away. People deserve the most reasonably expected results of their actions.
I wonder how the Fake Reverend Al Sharpton would of reacted if it was a 17yr old white hispanic,with his tea/skittles found in bed with a 16yr old black child,and the dad shot him,but not fatally.
Yes that district/area is currently having Spring Break.
But will the daughter be charged. Her saying that she didn’t know who he was got the kid killed.
I hope this Dad gets many many years in prison. He shot someone in cold blood. He was not a stranger in the house.
You are as obsessed by race as a Democrat.
The odds of the girl not knowing him are extremely small. Even if the Dad gets off with nothing, the boy’s family is going to sue him in civil court and take him to the cleaners.
Cleaned up version -
When you have a boy, you have one boy to worry about.
When you have a girl, you have every boy to worry about.
“girl says she does not know him”
Hmmm..My dad busts me with my boyfriend. He’s furious and stomping around with a gun. I can’t run for the hills...so I deny, deny, deny.
IMHO, the dad could have scared the bejesus out of the kid and called the cops in the meantime. Of course, I keep forgetting how mean some of the kids are today.
Just as I thought. His daughter lied. Her father is a murderer and justice is lots and lots of jail time.
This happens everyday and the dads don't murder the boyfriend.
“Is it spring break?”
Lent. Apparently someone was fuzzy on what “give up something for Lent” means. /humor
If I’m on the jury, the father will walk, and the boy’s family will have to pay the father for the next twenty years for causing stress and inconvenience in his (the father’s) family.
For the girl?
He shot am intruder messing with his minor daughter, I would vote to acquit, although I doubt this goes to trial
You or your kid sneak around my daughter and end up in her bedroom you are going to get your ass blown away.
No relativist argument on my part. That’s absolutely what is going to happen..
Depends on the truth if I am on the jury. It’s 2:30 in the morning, the girl lied and said she didn’t know the boy. At that point, if the boy threatened the man and the testimony reveals beyond a reasonable doubt that the man felt his life was in danger then it’s justified.
There are consequences to our decisions, and sometimes the consequences are tragic.
Terrible tragedy all the way around.
yup. plus making quick moves while a guy holds a gun on him.
a 17 year old is not a 12 year old. physically probably stronger than the dad. lot faster and more endurance.
Sneaking in is an intrusion
Leotards want to keep dropping that age too
When they turn 18 and move out they can do what they like
Actually, there IS a law against having sex with a minor. While being close in age is a defense against prosecution, that doesn’t make it legal.
Bottom line, the situation sucks all around but I’d give the father benefit of doubt under castle doctrine. It IS the father’s castle and he did disrupt illegal activity in his home involving his minor daughter.
