TOMBALL, Texas (KTRK) -- A victim in his late teens was shot after agreeing to meet an unknown party for a narcotics transaction in Tomball on Monday afternoon, deputies say.

Upon arrival, HCSO met Tomball PD and Rural Northwest EMS who had the young man with a gunshot wound to the head. He is expected to be OK.
