Police are looking for two suspects who killed a 16-year-old outside a supermarket on W. Little York Road

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – Police are searching for two teenagers responsible for the murder of a 16-year-old on West Little York Road.

Joshua Pedreza was killed around 6:15 p.m. on March 16 outside a supermarket at 2502 West Little York Road.

Police say three teenagers tried to rob Joshua. According to witnesses, a brief shootout ensued between the four teenagers, in which Joshua was killed after being shot from the front and back.

One of the suspects, a 15-year-old, was shot and taken to hospital. The other two teenage suspects ran from the scene.

Police said drugs were involved.

Arnetta Huckaby, a witness at the scene, called 911 when the shooting occurred.

“I’m sorry for your loss. If I could have saved him in the hospital I would have, but I tried my best out here,” she told Joshua’s grieving mother.

“He liked playing video games. He liked going for walks. He goes everywhere to get food,” said Leonardo Guardiola, Joshua’s cousin.

Relatives close to Joshua said he was a sophomore at Eisenhower High School.

A growing memorial now stands on the spot where the teenager was shot.

“We have to make sure he’s well taken care of up there. That’s why we brought all the candles and made the memorial for him,” Guardiola said.

Joshua’s family set up a GoFundMe account to help with funeral expenses.
