The Harris County Sheriff's Office said the 39-year-old suspected shooter was taken into custody after the incident that also wounded another teen.
The sheriff's office responded to reports of a possible road rage shooting in the 13000 block of Dawn Hallow Lane around 1:30 p.m. Deputies initially reported an 18-year-old was dead and a 17-year-old was injured.
Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said the teens were in a vehicle that was driven by a 15-year-old girl. About an hour earlier, the teens were in some sort of confrontation with another driver in an Audi SUV at a gas station near Beckford and Lima. The 18-year-old had been shouting at the driver before pulling a gun.
The sheriff said the Audi driver felt threatened and he pulled his own weapon, firing at the teens' vehicle, which then drove away to a nearby neighborhood.
Both parties contacted 911. No one in the Audi, which included the driver's mother, was injured. The teen driver of the targeted SUV was also unharmed.
Gonzalez said the suspected shooter has a concealed handgun license.
An investigation continues into the deadly incident.
