Teen Lauren Juma just 16 years old was shot and killed by her mother’s boyfriend in their Humble home. Van Henry Brisbon was charged with capital murder and his bond was set at 1$ million dollars.
Early Friday Morning Lauren face-timed her mother and oldest sister begging for someone to pick her up. She also stated he was acting weird, standing in her room in the dark.
“By the time I got there, the police were already out there searching around the house,” Harmon s aid, tears welling up. “I was there about three minutes before I heard two gunshots go off, and I ran toward the house.”
“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 of the mother stated they had no idea he would be capable of this. His niece is also emotionally upset and can’t understand how he could do such a thing.
Brisbon is scheduled to be back in court Monday.
