A father in Texas fatally shot a teenaged boy he found in his daughter’s bedroom and police say the daughter sneaked him into her room.

The father woke up Thursday morning to find the 17-year-old boy in his daughter’s bedroom.

The girl first told her father she didn’t know the boy.

So the father called police, and then he got into a fight with the teen.

He told police the boy dropped his hands as if to grab something, so he shot him.

The father was taken to the hospital after he told police he didn’t feel well.

No charges have been filed.

Neighbors say the family had just moved into the house about a week ago.
