2 teens killed during shooting at pool party in north Harris County identified, deputies say

Authorities say two teens were killed and another man was injured after a shooting that took place during what officials believe was a pool party at an apartment complex in north Harris County Friday night.

It happened in the 300 block of Airtex Drive near Brundage at around 10:40 p.m.

According to Sgt. Dennis Wolfford with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office’s Homicide Division, authorities received multiple reports of a shooting at the Kimberly Point Apartments after he said an altercation took place.

That was when multiple people began firing shots toward the apartment complex leasing office, Wolfford added.

When authorities arrived, they reportedly discovered two teens, both 17 years old, and a 20-year-old man with gunshot wounds. All three were transported to area hospitals.

The two 17-year-olds later died at the hospital. The 20-year-old man, who Wolfford said was shot twice, is expected to survive.

One of the teens was identified by his mother as Klein Oak High School senior Dillon Denman.

Dillon had reportedly just spoken with his mother before he arrived at the party.

His mom, who was at work in California, said the last thing she told Dillon was, “I love you” before they hung up.

Not too long after that call, Dillon’s mother said she began receiving calls from her son’s phone, saying he had been shot before flying back to Houston.

The other teen was identified by the Harris County Sheriff’s office as Cameron Allen.

Multiple people were detained for questioning as authorities work to figure out what happened.

“We do not know who was shooting first. We do have possible shooters detained,” Sgt. Wolfford said. “We are still working to figure out who exactly fired the shots. We will be interviewing them and reviewing surveillance video to determine how this went down.”

Deputies with HCSO Homicide are leading the investigation.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to call HCSO Homicide at 713-274-9100 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
