Two teenagers from Texas are now in the hospital after being injured in an apparent attempted murder-suicide. According to authorities.
According to family, the teens were listening to music in the room when the shots went off. According to ABC 13,
Around 3:30 a.m., four deputies were summoned to a nearby neighborhood to investigate a shooting. According to Sgt. Greg Pinkins of Harris County Homicide.
According to ABC 13, they were taken to local hospitals, where the 17-year-old boy was placed on life support. The 15-year-old boy is in critical condition at a different hospital.
According to the outlet, authorities believe that the 17-year old’s family is in the process donating his organs.
According to court records, the 15 year old’s mother moved him with his sister to the home one year ago after a split. Family members said the 17-year-old is a friend of the 15-year-old and had been staying at their residence on and off for an extended period of time.
The shooting shocked neighbors, who said they didn’t know much about the family.
“It appeared that the 17-year-old shot the 15-year-old and then turned the gun on himself,” Pinkins said.
According to the outlet, investigators are trying to determine how the gun was obtained by the teens.
