A fourteen-year-old boy began firing with a shotgun through “a house party gone wrong” late Saturday, November 30, injuring his sister and shooting her boyfriend, Harris County police officials state.
Police officers were summoned at approximately around 11:40 p.m. to a residence in the 24000 block of Pepperrell Place Street in Katy, approximately 25 miles west of Houston.
Sheriff Ed Gonzalez expected ten to twelve people were at the party while the fourteen-year-old got into a fight with his sister’s twenty-year-old boyfriend. The juvenile started firing with a shotgun, wounding his eighteen-year-old sister and shooting the boyfriend, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.
The sister was being administered at a local hospital and was steady after enduring surgery, sheriff’s Sgt. Eric Clegg stated.
“This was primarily a home party gone wrong,” Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said on social media.
The sheriff told the fourteen-year-old was confined at the home but was not in confinement Sunday morning. Police Officials will display the results of their research to a juvenile prosecutor, he stated.
The parents of the minor and his sister, who hold the house where the gunfire took place, were on a vacation in Cancún, the police officials stated.
