HOUSTON, Texas — A 13-year-old boy sought in the fatal shooting of a man last week in east Harris County reportedly talked to authorities Thursday.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office states the teen was accompanied by an attorney when he gave a statement. Deputies said the boy has not been charged with a crime and the case will go to a grand jury.

On Thursday afternoon, the boy’s attorney, Mark Thering, released this statement to Eyewitness News:

“Our young client was brave today as he expressed his feelings of fear during the unfortunate event,” according to a statement on Thursday from the boy’s attorney, Mark Thering.

“Detectives questioned the young boy and the truths regarding the incident were clear enough to release the child with no charges. We are confident the Grand Jury will agree the shooting was justifiable and return a No Bill of Indictment.”

Authorities say the fatal shooting all started with a domestic disturbance around 7:30 p.m. Friday when a man and his girlfriend showed up at a home on Bayou Drive near Forest Trail Drive for parental visitation with a child.

Investigators say there was an argument and that’s when the 13-year-old pulled out a gun, shot the man and took off running into the woods. Investigators identified the victim as 24-year-old David Jimenez.

Neighbors reportedly placed the victim in a truck and tried to drive him to the hospital.

The driver reportedly ended up pulling over to a Shell gas station near the East Freeway at Magnolia, where Jimenez was pronounced dead.

Meanwhile, in a separate incident, a man has died after a shooting at a business in north Houston.

Houston police reportedly tweeted Thursday night that officers were investigating a shooting at 2623 Berry Road where they found a man with a gunshot wound.

The man was transported to the hospital in critical condition, but has since died from his injuries.

Police said one person was detained for questioning. The name of the victim has not been released.
