A Texas father shot and killed a teenage boy who he found in his daughter’s bedroom early Thursday morning.

Harris County deputies said that the 16-year-old daughter snuck the 17-year-old boy into her bedroom. Her younger brother saw the boy, and notified the father.

When the father asked about the boy, the girl reportedly claimed she did not know him. The man called 911, and then he got into an argument with the boy.

The father said that he opened fire when the boy suddenly moved his hands.

The 17-year-old boy died at the scene.

According to The Houston Chronicle, the father complained that he was having panic attacks, and was taken to a nearby hospital. Deputies said that the man appeared to be on medication.
