Police are investigating what led up to a fatal shooting overnight in northeast Houston.

According to investigators, a male was shot around 12:30am in the back yard of a home on Nyssa near Trumpet in northeast Houston.

Five people were detained for questioning, but police have to get permission from a judge before talking to them about what happened because they are reportedly underage. Investigators said they are all friends.

The shooting victim -- who officials said was between the ages of 17 and 19 -- was taken to LBJ Hospital for surgery and later died.

It's unclear whether any parents were around at the time of the shooting. At last check, no weapon had been recovered from the scene.
