An investigation into a 19-year-old found dead inside a home on Blakely Grove Lane in Pearland is underway, according to police.

PEARLAND, Texas (KTRK) -- An investigation into a 19-year-old found dead inside a home in Pearland is underway, according to police.

Pearland police officers responded to reports of gunshots at about 3 p.m. Sunday in the 1400 block of Blakely Grove Lane. That's when they found the male dead inside a home.

A neighbor told ABC13 she heard what sounded like six gunshots go off.

The 19-year-old lives at the home with his grandparents, who are also his legal guardians. They were out of town at the time of the shooting, according to the victim's cousin.

Based on an ongoing investigation, police said there is no known threat to the community. Pearland Police added they are taking longer than expected to release more information.

Neighbors in the quiet gated community are shocked that a deadly shooting would take place there.

"We haven't seen very much random acts of violence here," neighbor Kathleen Stross said. "Using social media, this neighborhood is always on high alert."

If you know any information about the case, you are urged to contact the Pearland Crime Tip Line at 281-997-4211.
