Family of teen boy killed by girlfriend’s father wants daughter charged
The family of a teenage boy who was killed after getting caught in his girlfriend’s bedroom wants the girl charged.
Johran McCormick was shot and killed by his girlfriend’s father on March 13.
Investigators said the father accused in the shooting woke up to find Johran in his 16-year-old daughter’s bedroom around 2:30 a.m. According to detectives, the daughter snuck Johran in, but told her dad a different story when confronted.
Her younger brother went to say good night and saw two feet sticking out from underneath the bed, detectives said. He then went to get his father. The father walked in and asked questions, but his daughter claimed to not know McCormick. The father then called 911, but an argument ensued with the teenage boy.
The father told deputies that Johran dropped his hands as if to grab something, so he opened fire. Johran was shot in the head and died at the scene.
The Harris County Grand Jury will decide if the father is to face charges in connection to the shooting.
Johran’s family and supporters are demanding that Houston District Attorney Devon Anderson motion to file either one to two counts of accessory to murder, or involuntary manslaughter against the girl.
Should the girl and/or her father be charged?
