Johran McCormick

Family and friends of 17-year-old Johran McCormick gathered Sunday to say their final farewells to the slain teen, many wearing bow-ties to honor his memory.

“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.”

As previously reported by NewsOne, the Houston father who fatally shot McCormick after discovering the teen in bed with his 16-year-old daughter will likely not face charges.

“What was going on in the person’s mind at the time of the shooting, [not] what they found out after the fact” is key, said Houston area prosecutor Warren Diepraam . “They’re looking at what he was thinking when he made the decision to shoot.”

McCormick was discovered around 2:30 a.m. after the girl’s younger brother noticed two feet sticking from underneath his sister’s bed and went to tell his father.

The father, who has not been identified, grabbed his gun and ran to his daughter’s room where he confronted who he thought was an intruder.

The girl initially lied and said that she did not know McCormick. The father and the teen argued and when it appeared that the boy was reaching for a gun, the father shot him in the head.

McCormick, who was unarmed, died at the scene.

His distraught mother, Zakia McCormick, is allegedly hoping that the girl’s father is charged with murder.

“If you take a life, you give your life,” Zakia McCormick said the Houston Chronicle. “We’re suffering. Why isn’t he suffering too?”

“I wish the father could have asked more questions, he could have picked up the phone,” said Shawn Curley, the teen’s father. “And for her to say she didn’t know who he was, that was most hurtful.”
