FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas — Two Ridge Point High School students were killed and another person was hospitalized after a shooting Saturday night in Fresno, according to the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies were dispatched shortly after 8 p.m. when FBCSO received a call about multiple shots fired in a neighborhood off FM 521 near Highway 6.

Investigators arrived at a house in the 300 block of Broadmore Drive, where they found Devin Massey, 15, and Jonathan Massey, 17, dead inside a vehicle parked in the driveway. A third victim was taken to an area hospital, deputies said.
