Family of teen killed in "bedroom shooting" wants girl charged

HOUSTON (CBS NEWS)- Family, friends, and supporters of Johran McCormick, the Texas teen who was shot and killed by his girlfriend's father, want the girlfriend to be held accountable for her role in his death, reports CBS affiliate KHOU.

The 17-year-old boy was shot inside the Spring-area home on March 13. Investigators said the father accused in the shooting woke up to find McCormick in his 16-year-old daughter's bedroom around 2:30 a.m. According to detectives, the daughter snuck McCormick in, but told her dad a different story when confronted, reports the station.

The 16-year-old's younger brother reportedly went to say goodnight and saw two feet sticking out from underneath the bed, detectives said. He then went to get his father.

The father walked in and asked questions, but his daughter claimed to not know McCormick. The father then called 911, but an argument ensued with the teenage boy.

The father told deputies that McCormick dropped his hands as if to grab something, so he opened fire. McCormick was shot in the head and died at the scene.

The Harris County Grand Jury will decide if the father will face charges, but many think the teen girl is also at fault, according to the station.

McCormick's family and supporters demand that Houston District Attorney Devon Anderson motion to file either one to two counts of accessory to murder, or involuntary manslaughter against the young girl who they say intentionally lied to her father, which led to McCormick's death.
