Fire investigators called to a house fire near Northside where a 17-year-old was found shot to death

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – The Houston Fire Department was responding to a fire at a home nearby where a 17-year-old was found shot to death a week earlier.

Crews arrived at the scene around 11:30 p.m. following a house fire call at 1329 East 35th Street.

The fire was severe at the front of the home but was quickly put out when crews arrived, district chief Kevin Carley said. HFD Arson Division was also called.

At that time nobody was in the house.

According to nearby neighbors, the house was near a crime scene from the week before.

On May 22, police responded to a shooting on E. 36th Street but were alerted to a separate crime scene six miles away where the unidentified 17-year-old was found shot to death on the 1300 block of East 35th Street.

A suspect has since been arrested in connection with the shooting.

It’s unclear if the fire and shooting are related.
