Police are investigating a home invasion shooting that left a teenager dead in Fort Worth.

The shooting happened Wednesday morning in the 1700 block of Warren Lane. Police have not yet released many details but said homicide detectives are investigating.

Family members told FOX 4 the victim was 15-year-old King Thomas III.

They said he was living with his older brother and had recently reconnected with some old friends. Thomas’ family members believe his old friends showed up at the house to rob him and ultimately shot him. He died at the hospital.

“He was 15 and all he wanted to do was be a rapper and now he’s not here no more,” said Shawndrisa Hicks, Thomas’ mother.

The teen’s family said they are at a loss for words. They described him as a good kid who loved and liked everyone. They’re hoping that the suspects are captured soon and brought to justice.
