Someone was breaking the law....

Justin Thompson, 19, Bayou Body Count No. 242

A teen who was shot while "other people were taking part in criminal activity" died Sunday, Houston police say.

Justin Thompson, 19, was shot about 3 p.m. in the 1800 block of Chantilly and taken to Memorial Hermann Northwest Hospital by a companion.

The driver told police Thompson had been shot in the shoulder at the house while a group of people were taking part in what he said was criminal activity.

"It is not known what activity the suspects were engaging in or if Thompson was taking part or simply a bystander," police say.

"The suspects are described only as a black male with braces and a black or Hispanic male with his hair pulled back and tied," HPD says. "They were last seen in a gold or tan four-door Buick with unknown license plates."

Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
