LIBERTY COUNTY, Texas – Investigators have released a photo of a vehicle they believe to be in connection to the shooting of a 14-year-old teen in Liberty County Tuesday.
It happened around 10 p.m. in front of a home located on Country Road 3995, just north of the Cleveland city limits.
According to deputies, the teen was shot in front of his home by unknown suspects. Authorities said the teen was transported by Air Life to HCA Conroe in critical condition with gunshot wounds to his arm and side. The teen is now in stable condition, deputies said.
Captain Knox with Liberty County Sheriff’s Office said they are looking for a white two-door sedan that may have been involved.
Liberty County detectives are hoping to talk to the teen to determine what took place before the shooting. Liberty County District Attorney Jenifer Bergman is also assisting in the investigation.
“I heard what appeared to be three to four gunshots, and then someone sounded like they threw in a bunch of firecrackers,” a neighbor told KPRC 2′s Zach Lashway. “Then a vehicle drove off. About 30 minutes later, there was a vehicle I heard come back to this right in here, and one shot fired, and then the lady started screaming, ‘My son! My son!’”
