Dad shoots boy in teenage daughter's room Published: March 14, 2014

HOUSTON — A father didn't have to kill a teenage boy after catching him inside his daughter's bedroom, the boy's family is saying.

"I would like my baby back, but I know that's not possible," said Zakia McCormick. "A call you know, I'm sorry. He didn't deserve to die like that."

Johran McCormick, 17, was shot inside a Spring, Texas-area home Thursday after investigators say the father accused in the shooting woke up to find the teen in his 16-year-old daughter's bedroom.

Harris County Precinct 4 Deputy Constables were the first to respond after someone called 911 around 2:30 a.m. The Harris County Sheriff's Office also responded to the shooting.
