KINGWOOD, Texas (KTRK) – For the second morning in a row, a Houston-area teenager has lost his life to gun violence. This time the stepson of a Houston police sergeant was killed.

The latest shooting took place on a walking trail off the 2500 block of North Kings Mill Lane just before 8:30 p.m. Monday in the Kings Mill subdivision.

Video from the night shows investigators taping off an area behind some houses near a walking path in the neighborhood.

It was there that a woman found a 14-year-old boy lying on the sidewalk. Sadly, this teenager died from his injuries.

The woman told police she heard gunshots as she was walking around in the evening and saw two men running away from the neighborhood.

She continued to walk and that was when she found the teenager on the ground, unaware of multiple gunshot wounds.

According to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, the victim is the stepson of an HPD sergeant. The identity of the teenager was not disclosed.

The police department further confirmed the teenager’s death, adding, “The family is asking for prayers and for their privacy to be respected during their mourning.”

New Caney ISD confirmed that the slain teenager was a student in the district.

“We are deeply saddened by this news,” the district said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the student’s family at this time.”

Investigators did not know what led to the shooting or who could be responsible.

“She continued walking and came across an unconscious black man lying on the sidewalk who was suffering from several gunshot wounds,” said specialist Thomas Hudson.

Now the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information to contact their department.

Another teenager, believed to be barely 16, was shot dead in Galena Park early Monday morning.

When authorities responded to a call for shooting, they found several shell casings on the street and a Hispanic teenager, only 16 or 17, lying in the front yard of a house.
