John Weido rushed to his son's home late Sunday night after Pearland Police told him someone shot his son.

"Apparently he went to the front door and on the right side of the floor was a fixed glass, he always looked out that glass and apparently when he looked out they shot him five or six times," John said.

Neighbors say they heard those shots and then looked outside as a car drove away from the home.
