HOUSTON – Police say a 14-year-old man died after he was shot and then hit by a vehicle on Tuesday in northwest Houston.
The incident was reported around 8pm in block 6100 of West Tidwell Road.
Police said when they arrived at the scene, they called for a rescue because of the chaotic crowd. Officers said the teen did not respond.
Investigators said a gun was found near the scene. Police say it is not known if this was the actual weapon used in the shooting or if it was another weapon.
Police said a witness was in his apartment watching through the window and seeing a vehicle pulling up the victim. The witness told officers that the victim was talking to a man whose description was unknown because the man was wearing a dark colored dress and had a hood on his head.
Investigators said things were starting to warm up and a backpack was taken from the victim. Shots were then fired and the victim was struck while leaving the scene, police said.
Officers say at least two suspects are involved in the shooting. One of the suspects ran on foot, police said. Investigators said the other suspect ran the victim as he drove off the scene. Police say the suspect was a late silver sedan or possibly a Chevy Malibu.
This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone who manages the incident should call HPD Homicide at 713-308-3600 or our Crime Prevention phone number at 713-222-TIPS.
