” The shooting happened about 2:30 a.m. Thursday. Assistant Chief Deputy Constable Mark Herman says the 55-year-old homeowner heard noises coming from his 16-year-old daughter’s bedroom, investigated, found the boy with his daughter and shot him in the ensuing altercation. The father says he shot the boy when the teen dropped his hands as if to grab for something.
Investigators say the girl let the boy into the house and into the bedroom, but then told her father that she did not know the boy.
While the Harris County grand jury will have the final say on whether the father will face charges, prosecutor Warren Diepraam said he doesn’t expect any.
“ What they found out after the fact isn’t going to matter a whole bunch. They’re looking at what he was thinking when he made the decision to shoot,” he said.”
