HARRIS COUNTY – An investigation is underway after two teens were found shot inside a north Harris County home in a possible attempted murder-suicide, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.
Gonzalez said in a tweet that deputies with Harris County Pct. 4 responded to a call for service in the 6900 block of Round Rose Court in Spring at around 3 a.m.
According to HCSO Sgt. Greg Pinkins, two teen boys, ages 15 and 17, were listening to music in a room when.
Two women, who appeared to be sisters of the 15-year-old, heard “loud pops” from the boys’ room and walked over to investigate. That was when they found both boys on the ground unresponsive with gunshot wounds.
Sgt. Pinkins said investigators believe the 17-year-old shot the 15-year-old in the head, then turned the gun on himself.
Both were transported to an area hospital in critical condition. The 15-year-old is currently in the intensive care unit following his surgery, while the 17-year-old is expected to survive his injuries.
Investigators are trying to find out where the 17-year-old got the gun.
