It happened around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday at 15400 Park Manor near Markwood Lane.
Police told ABC13 that residents said they heard gunfire.
One family knew their daughter was walking the dog, so they got worried and went looking.
Sadly, they found the teenager dead, lying on the side of the road next to a community park.
The dog ran home.
So far, police believe it was a shooting by a driver and a dark-colored vehicle may have taken off from the scene.
Investigators are looking for surveillance video.
In the meantime, they’re asking anyone with video or other information to please call Crime Stoppers or HPD Homicide at 713-308-9080.
