A grand jury will now decide whether any charges will be filed against a Texas father who fired one fatal shot at a 17-year-old boy he found in his teenage daughter’s bedroom early Thursday morning.
As photos of victim Johran McCormick emerged on Friday, his heartbroken family said the least they expect is an apology from the gun-wielding dad, who constables say was on ‘several medications’ at the time of the incident.
‘I would like my baby back, but I know that’s not possible,’ the victim’s mother, Zakia McCormick, told KHOU 11 News.
‘I have never ever felt a pain like this. Ever.
‘(I want) a call, you know. ”I’m sorry”. He didn’t deserve to die that like.’
Investigators said the suspect’s 16-year-old daughter let the boy into the house.
The father told police that he was woken up by one of his four children who said someone was in the house, which is located on the 22300 block of Bridgestone Ridge Dr in Spring.
At first, the daughter denied knowing the boy and an argument ensued between the stranger and the father when he wouldn’t listen to the father’s commands.
