‘Where did those guns come from?’ 2 teens dead, 15-year-old injured after shootout in Pasadena, police say

PASADENA, Texas – Two teens are dead and another is injured after a shootout Sunday night, according to the Pasadena Police Department.

The shooting was reported around 10 p.m. in the parking lot of an apartment complex located in the 3800 block of Red Bluff Road and Beltway 8.

When police arrived at the scene, they reportedly found three teens suffering from gunshot wounds.

Police said a 17-year-old boy and 16-year-old boy were killed in the shooting. A 15-year-old was also struck during the shooting and was flown to a hospital via Life Flight. His condition is unknown.

During the investigation, investigators believe the 17-year-old and 16-year-old that died had an altercation and both fired at each other. It is unclear what led up to the exchange of gunfire.

Police are now investigating how the teens had access to guns and where they came from.

“Where did those guns come from, and why did they have them out here when this altercation started? Why was [there] a need for them to have the guns here?” said Sgt. Rual Granados.

Investigators with the PPD are continuing to look into exactly what happened between the teens.
