HOUSTON, Texas — Deputies responded to a home invasion at 2806 Trailing Vine early Wednesday where suspects shot three victims.
2-year-old Ivory West Jr. was shot and killed and the two other victims were in surgery. The father, 38, was shot nine to 10 times.
Deputies are still at the scene conducting an investigation with members of the Harris County Sheriff’s office.
The suspects are described as two black males, 20-30 years of age.
Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said, “It’s a horrible morning. You know we’ve seen too much loss of life especially with children. Cameron, Maleah, Jasmine just too many and that’s just to name a few. And so this is simply unacceptable. As a community we can’t accept it.”
This is Ivory West Jr.
He is the little boy who was shot and killed this morning, standing next to his dad. His dad was shot 9-10 times. He’s in the hospital in critical condition. The sheriff says the motive was robbery. Two suspects at large. #abc13 https://t.co/mBrF3kCF9D pic.twitter.com/NLNP2LBgMh
