Father who shot teen in daughter’s bedroom unlikely to face charges
A Houston father who fatally shot a 17-year-old boy after finding him inside of his daughter’s bedroom early Thursday will most likely not be charged. A grand jury still has to review the case.
The father, who was only identified as a 55-year-old in reports, was awaken by his son around 2:20 a.m. He was told someone was in his 16-year-old daughter’s bedroom and he grabbed his gun.
The man found Johran McCormick in bed with his daughter, who told him she did not know him.
The father said he told the teen not to move, but reportedly saw the teen reach for something, at which point police say the father opened fire. The teen did not have a gun. His daughter later confessed that she snuck her boyfriend, 17, into the house, the report said.
Authorities aren’t sure if the father knew McCormick or not before the incident.
What do you think?
Should the father be charged?
