HARRIS COUNTY, Texas— The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a teenager was shot several times at a park in west Harris County.

Deputies responded to a shooting call in the 15900 block of Oakendell around 7:30 p.m.

According to witnesses, a 17-year-old was walking down the street when he stopped at a crosswalk by a park. As he stood at the crosswalk, a man came from the south entrance of the park and shot multiple rounds at the teen.

The victim managed to run one block to his residence, where he collapsed. His family immediately called police.

The suspect allegedly ran to the north side of the park and opened fire on another group of teens before crossing the street and running toward an abandoned apartment complex.

The shooter, who witnesses said is at least 5 feet 6 inches tall, was last seen wearing a white shirt and silver shorts.

The victim was transported to Cy-Fair Hospital in critical, but stable condition.
