Two teens, Devin Massey and Jonathan Massey, were killed Saturday in a shooting outside a Fresno home, according to the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office.

FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas – Teen brothers were killed and one person was seriously injured Saturday in a shooting outside a Fresno home, according to the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies identified the victims as Devin Massey, 15, and Jonathan Massey, 17.

In a written statement released on Sunday, the family said the boys were randomly killed and asked for prayers and justice.

Our children were randomly murdered last night and we would like to ask for prayers and justice. It is beyond senseless and cruel to kill our babies under any circumstances. Even more so without rhyme or reason. God is head of our family and Jojo and Devin are now walking streets of gold and wearing wings over us left behind. As parents, we ask for any leads big or small.

Social media posts, cameras and whatever else could lead to the capture of these ruthless murderers. As Christians we ask for prayers and unity. As humans we ask the gunmen to please turn to God and turn yourself into police. Get this off your chest before judgement day.

We want our boys to be remembered for their respectful character and their charismatic, fun loving ways. Their talents on and off the football field since birth. Their loyalty to their family and kindness to their friends never wavered. Their spirit will always make us smile through the humorous memories of our two young boys.

To my sweet Jojo and Devin, your life was shortened but your impact is mighty and forever powerful.

Driveway shooting

At approximately 8 p.m. Saturday, Fort Bend County Sheriff’s units were dispatched to a residence in the 300 block of Broadmore Drive in reference to a shooting. On arrival, deputies found two juvenile males dead inside a vehicle parked in the driveway, according to officials.

Deputies also located a third victim on the scene who was taken by ambulance to a hospital in the Texas Medical Center with serious injuries.

Preliminary information suggests unknown suspects wearing masks and driving an unknown vehicle pulled up to the driveway and began firing at the three males inside the parked car, officials said. Gunfire was exchanged briefly before the suspects fled.

One person was temporarily detained at the scene while investigators worked to determine his involvement. He was later released.

The motive for the shooting is still unknown, Chief Deputy Chad Norvell said. An investigation into the shooting is ongoing.

If you would like to support the family, a GoFundMe account has been created.
