A second teenager was gunned down over the weekend, Houston police say.
Marcos Juarez, 18, was shot Sunday afternoon on the southwest side in a drive-by shooting, HPD said.
Juarez was standing outside when a man pulled p in a pick-up truck and shot him about 2:30 p.m. in the 9500 block of Beechnut, HPD says.
He was taken to Ben Taub Hospital where he died of his wounds.
An unidentified teen was also killed on the southeast side this weekend.
Anyone with information on either case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
