16-year-old, shot and killed inside her home; her mother's boyfriend, Van Henry Brisbon, gets charged with her murder

 A 16-year-old was shot and killed inside her home early Friday morning in Humble, and her mother's boyfriend has been charged with her murder, Kossyderrickent reports. (Read More Here).

Van Henry Brisbon, 60, has been charged with murder. He has yet to appear in court, but his bond was set to $1 million.

The tragic series of events began early Friday morning when Juma Facetimed with her mother and one of her older sisters.

"It was 1 o'clock in the morning, and she just said he was being really weird and she wanted me to come pick her up," said Keryca Harmon, Lauren's 19-year-old sister. "That's what I did."

But Harmon would never get to see her sister alive again.

"By the time I got there, the police were already out there searching around the house," Harmon said, tears welling up. "I was there about three minutes before I heard two gunshots go off, and I ran toward the house."

According to court records, Lauren told her mom, Laurie Young, in her Facetime call that Brisbon was standing inside her room in the dark and wanted her mother to tell him to get out, which she did. Lauren then screamed, "mom he has a gun," court records say. Then, the call was ended.

Meanwhile, Young, who was at a work training program in Austin, rushed back to the home she shared with Brisbon and her daughter for three years.

"She was 16. She just joined the cheerleading team," recalled the devastated mother. "She had a bright future ahead of her, and she was going to go to the U.S. Air Force when she graduated."

Family members who had met Brisbon over the past few years said outwardly that he seemed friendly and had no problems.

"He just seemed like a really good person when we met him," recalled cousin Antoinette Buckley. "Nobody thought this was going to happen."

Harmon told ABC13 that Brisbon had been "weird" before.
