Harris County Sheriff's investigators don't yet know why it was done or who did it, but they do know the name of the teenager who was shot and killed just north of Kingwood on Tuesday night.

Hey, it's a start.

Deputies say that Damien Williams, 19, was in an apartment complex at 5619 Aldine Bender Road when an unknown man started shooting at him. The teenager was struck several times before the gunman ran away.

It turned out Williams was not the only one to get shot, though. Investigators say one of the bullets fired through a window into an apartment and hit a bystander in the knee. That person is expected to live.

Anyone with information about this case can call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
