Two teens dead, another injured in triple shooting in Pasadena, police say

Pasadena police say a 16-year-old died at the scene, while a 17-year-old died at the hospital.

PASADENA, Texas — Two teens are dead and another was badly injured in a shooting in Pasadena late Sunday night, according to police.

Pasadena police said two of the victims, a 17-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy were airlifted to a local hospital. A 16-year-old boy was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators say one of the boys who was airlifted also died.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The video above is from a report prior to police saying a second teen had died.

This happened at about 10 p.m. on Red Bluff Road just off Beltway 8.

Investigators said witnesses saw two people running from the scene, after the shooting, but they are not sure if they were involved in the deadly incident.

Police said they found the 16-year-old with several gunshot wounds in a car. Then they found a third male teen who collapsed at the apartment building.

Police did say they recovered two guns at the scene and it is possible that the two teens killed were involved with an altercation with one another. Investigators also said they will be talking to the 15-year-old who is expected to survive about what he knows about the incident.

“We do have some witnesses who observed two subjects running. but at this time, we don’t know if they were suspects or another reason like being scared from hearing the gun shots.” PPD Sgt. Raul Granados said.

Pasadena police are asking more people who know anything about this triple shooting to contact them.
