SPRING, Texas — Friends and family said their final goodbyes to a teen who was fatally shot in his girlfriend’s bedroom last week, CBS affiliate KHOU reported.

Funeral services for 17-year-old Johran McCormick were held Sunday afternoon in Spring, outside Houston.

“Honestly I don’t think it hit a lot of us yet that this is the reality of the situation,” cousin Khiron Woods told KHOU. “Anytime I talk about him I have to smile. Anytime anybody talks about him, anytime somebody has some sort of memory with him, it’s positive.”

    I’m very sorry about what happened to this young man and no he should not have been shot. The dad should have called the police. But if everything was so good about this young man, then why didn’t he have enough respect for this young lady to not be in her bedroom. He didn’t belong in that room i don’t care what was going on!!! That’s also disrespectful to her parents!!! But no he shouldn’t have been shot!!!

      Why are you demonizing the DEAD victim? Why didn’t the girl respect her home, parents and herself? And on top of that, why did she LIE and get this boy killed? You were 17 before. No, he should not have been in the room but this is not out of the norm for a young person.

        This is Texas, no surprise. Dad will probably get a medal. This story sickens me. The identity of dad is being eerily withheld as is his race, I bet he was white.

        • san

          Nope he’s black

          • cbs

            No he’s not…try again

          • londonsmom

            Yeah he is

          • Adam Cooke

            he’s hispanic from what i understand

          • Allisha Jackson

            He is hispanic! Not that it matters.

    • Lawna Young

      Wow, he’s a teen! I’m sure many teens have done this!

      • Rashell Hammons Sey

        Thats the problem, we make it seem ok because he was a teen and all teens do it which is not true. He may have been a good kid but I agree out of respect to the young ladies parents he should not have been there and he snuck in there. He should not be dead and shame on the young lady for lying. Her father and she will regret this for ever and she may even get bullied about this. Im praying for all families effected.

        • countnnita

          Why did SHE disrespect HER parents? She shuck him in there, he did not break into this home.

          • Lawna Young

            Exactly!

    • Allisha Jackson

      I’m sorry, but I don’t know ANY teens that didn’t have or sneak a friend over, male or female, She shouldn’t have lied point blank, and the Father never should have shot him, I can’t imagine what there was to argue about,the dude should have called his girlfriend out. And YOU don’t know what the girlfriend told him to lure him over, I’m sure this wasn’t his first time over this late, the daughter just got caught and panicked now her life nor this young man’s family will never be the same, just sad all the way around

    • countnnita

      He, He, He what about the disrespect that SHE had for her own parents? He did not break in she let him in. At that age I don’t know to many young boys that would say no to their girlfriend if she asked him to sneak over to her house while her parents are sleep or not at home.

    We also just laid a 21 yr old to rest on Saturday after being shot by a police officers. I wish this in bith of these stories could have been different, and everyone was home on earth smiling with family and friends. I pray that we get smarter about what guns really do.

    Regardless of the race of the parent, this is a tragedy that never should have happened. The daughter should be charged for lying about knowing the young man. And yes, we have all been teenagers and have done the exact same thing. There was probably nothing inappropriate going on, other than the fact that he should not have been in her bedroom. Let’s remember though, he didn’t break in, she allowed him in. This is just another sad case of a young man gone too soon over foolishness!!!!!

  • Channing Ford

    This was a bit exteme. When is the killing of our youth going to stop. It was no deed for the father to shoot and kill the lil dude. I read a few comments about why the two teens didnt respect their parents house. This is a common situation among teens and certainly not necessary to be killed or or someone kill someone over. Daughter lied and father reacted from that and now someone is dead. Teens will be teens, we have all fallen short in some way as a teen. The father should be held liable for his actions. His daughter just got caught and lied to get out of it and it cost someone their life. She should be held accountable as well. Classic case of teens being young!

    • Adam Cooke

      it wasn’t the least bit extreme. intruder in home at 2 in the morning, girls claimed they didn’t know who it was, he was dropped like a bad habit. the girl lied, there should be a consequence to that.

  • Deltricia Williams

    what difference does it make, what color he is…another child has been murdered, due to the 2nd amendment…it is going to be the death of a lot more..

  • Sandman

    Damn I may have done the same thing…smh I can’t judge the shooter,there’s a man code and the boy broke it.A man will kill u for his baby girl…real talk

    • Roderick Miguel Allen

      Yeah, a man will kill you over his baby girl but let’s face it. Young girls are promiscuous and we all know that. What’s the point in killing this kid or any kid for that matter. It probably won’t keep the girl’s legs closed.

  • Sassy Kid from OKC

    The young man did not break into the house nor kick the door down to gain entry. The daughter let him in, this is murder….and should be treated as such.

  • Rubin Huckabee

    just another black man dead because of stupid behavior-which seems to b the norm for them-sorry that he is dead-but where is the COMMON SENSE -have theyoung dudes forgotten that they r an ENDANGERED SPECIES-hunted by their own kind and every other race on the planet-Wake up young BLACK males realize that for the BLACK RACE TO EXIST you got to be ALIVE and MULTIPLY

  • Lavern Nieci Hill

    I am very disturbed and disgusted by some of the comments made about this incident. Its true that the young man was being disrespectful and should not have been in those people’s home but this young lady was disrespecting her parents and then she lied and cost this young man his life as well. Not all young girls are promiscuous as was said in one statement but I think in this case the young girl was being hot in the tail. She should face charges for lying and the father should be charged with something because he didn’t have to kill this young man. I hope that this is a lesson to some of you young males and females to think twice before you do something like this on both parts. Unfortunately this young man had to lose his life behind nonsense and lies. R.I.P Johran
