A 16-year-old boy is dead after he was run over by a white van in northwest Harris County. Deputy investigators say it all started with a fight off Duckett Park and Sutton Meadow. They say the victim, Rubelin Castro, and two other boys were fighting with a group of men in the van. The teens left, thinking the fight was over. Then the van came at them.

"The driver of the van jumped the curb, ran through the yard and ran over and killed one of the juveniles," said Sgt. Ben Beall of the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

Castro died at the scene. The van took off and deputies are now looking for it.
