Police say two adolescent guys were shot dead while unloading goods for a Thanksgiving dinner in Houston early Thursday.
Responding officers discovered an 18-year-old kid with a gunshot wound to the chest and a 17-year-old youngster with a gunshot wound to the neck.
The older victim was pronounced dead at the spot, while the younger victim was brought to a hospital and ultimately died as a result of his injuries.
The incident happened shortly after midnight at an apartment complex in the 11755 block of Southlake Drive.
The mother of the 18-year-old identified him to ABC 13 as President Wynn. She said he had just graduated from high school in the spring and would have celebrated his 19th birthday on Dec. 8.

Tasha Cooke said her son was unloading groceries from the car when he was gunned down.
Cops said Wynn and the 17-year-old victim were related and lived in the apartment complex where the shooting took place.
According to police, there was a fight in the courtyard before gunfire erupted.
It’s unclear at this time whether either Wynn or his younger family member were the intended targets.
Cops believe four to five shots were fired from a handgun. They said they were looking for one suspect but did not have a good description.
