Unnamed 18-Year-Old, Bayou Body Count No. 14

Another alleged thief bites the dust, thanks again to a heavily-armed citizen of Texas.

At about 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, Harris County Sheriff's deputies drove over to 307 Remington Creek in response to reports of gunfire. There, they found an 18-year-old guy, dead from a gunshot wound, authorities say.

Investigators claim that the teen and a friend were trying to steal a car parked in someone's driveway, when all of a sudden that someone woke up, grabbed his gun and started firing at the boys. The armed owner of the car missed one of the alleged robbers but hit the 18-year-old once, killing him on the spot, authorities say. The friend ran away and has not been found.

County officials have not yet released the names of the victim or the shooter. The gunman has not been charged, sheriff's deputies say, but the case will be sent to a grand jury.
