A juvenile male was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting at a gated community in north Houston Sunday morning, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

Around 3:25 a.m. Sunday, HCSO units responded to reports of an in-progress incident at Villas at Northpark in the 2700 block of Hackamore Hollow Lane, near the intersection of Hackamore Hollow Lane and Fairbuff Lane in north Houston.
