SPRING, TX – A 55-year-old Texas father shot and killed a teenage boy after the man’s daughter snuck the boy into the house but denied knowing the boy when confronted by her father.

Eventually, the daughter confessed that she had brought the teenage boy into the house.

It all began when the girl’s younger brother noticed feet sticking out from her bed.  The son went and told the father, who grabbed a pistol and went to investigate.   The 17-year-old began arguing with the father after the daughter denied knowing the teenager.

According to reports, the teen ignored the father’s commands and suddenly reached for something, prompting the father to shoot the boy, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
