Another Tragic Texas Shooting Involving Minors
Just last month, a Texas homeowner was away on a trip when the next-door neighbor found 3 teenagers dead in his Harris County home. According to reports, the victims were all under 18 years of age. They were identified as 15-year-old Hayden Burns, 17-year-old Hayley Burns, and her friend 17-year-old friend, Kadience Cadena.
