A 20-year-old man drowned during a late night swim at a closed community pool in northwest Harris County. Authorities say he was one of at least four people who jumped a fence to go swimming at a community pool off Breckenridge Forest at Spring Shannon.

Deputies say his three friends noticed him at the bottom of the pool. Two of them took off but one stayed behind to call for help.

Emergency crews started CPR but the victim died on the way to the hospital. There's still no word on the identity of the victim.

Deputies are questioning the other man who stayed behind.
