HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A family is grieving after a 15-year-old was shot and killed in a northeast Houston neighborhood.
Police said the teenager was shot when someone drove by and opened fire.
Houston police said officers were called at 6:21 p.m. to a shooting in the 2900 block of Brewster Street, which is two blocks from the Eastex Freeway in Greater Fifth Ward.
At the scene, officers found a 15-year-old boy with a gunshot wound to the torso.
He was rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he later died, police said.
