Deputies said it appears Kameron was hit by at least one bullet when someone opened fire into the home from the street.

Investigators said at the time of the shooting that it appeared an assault rifle was used in the shooting.

Gonzalez said at the time of the shooting that the family had only lived at the Channelview home for a few months.
