CONROE, Texas (TCD) -- A 17-year-old male turned himself in after allegedly shooting his parents this week while his other siblings were home.
On Feb. 7, at approximately 9:20 p.m., deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of an assault with a firearm in the 9000 block of Waller Street. Deputies found a man, later identified as 41-year-old Leroy Constantine Jr., with apparent gunshot wounds. Despite lifesaving measures, officials pronounced him dead at the scene.
Deputies also found an adult female victim. She was transported to a local hospital, and the sheriff’s office said she will likely survive.
Further investigation revealed 17-year-old Tra Vontay Constantine allegedly shot his mother and father after a verbal dispute. The sheriff’s office did not say what the argument was about.
The news source reports investigators do not believe the parents own a firearm, and it is unknown where the weapon came from.
Constantine eventually turned himself in at the sheriff’s office and was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and murder. He remains held on $250,000 bond.
