Man shot and killed, teens detained in northwest Harris County

GRANTS TRACE, Texas (KTRK) -- Deputies are investigating the death of a man in northwest Harris County. At least four teenagers are being detained in connection with the case.

The man was shot early Sunday morning during a family gathering on Hamlet Vale Court at Bach Elm Street.

"There was a younger male, a teenage male that was involved in a verbal altercation not physical with the male that was shot. He may or may not be a suspect. We don't know because apparently there were two or three people wrestling when it became evident that someone pulled a pistol out," said Lt. Lawrence Rush of the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies say many of the witnesses seem to be intoxicated.
