Houston teen fatally shot after home hit with paintballs

Houston police are investigating the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old after a man whose home was splattered with paintballs said he opened fire because he thought someone was shooting at his residence.

Police said Wednesday that the resident shot at a group of people late Tuesday evening. Police say other residents said they saw multiple people in the front yard before they fled in different vehicles.

Police say four men drove the 19-year-old to a hospital. The man’s identity is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

Paintballs and paint splatter could be seen at the home.

Police say investigators are talking with people who may have been with the victim.

Police say that so far there have been no arrests or charges related to the shooting.
