Shots fired outside service for murdered Spring High School student

SPRING - by Drew Karedes/KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com

Authorities are investigating a report of a disturbance Sunday night outside the memorial for a Spring High School student, who was stabbed to death last week.

According the Harris County Sheriff's Office, tensions escalated at the Spring Baptist Church, which was packed full of people for a memorial honoring Joshua Broussard. Broussard, 17, was stabbed to death last week during an altercation at the school.

The church is located in the 1000 block of Spring Cypress.

Alleged members of the Brown Pride Gang were escorted out of the church and then there were reports of a huge melee breaking out in the parking lot with up to eight gunshots fired.

There were no reports of any injuries or arrests. HSCO and the Spring ISD Police are investigating the incident.

Everyone just got into a panic attack and started running..everybody was falling trying to duck..because somebody says they saw a gun," Taylor Harris, a friend of Broussard, said.

Harris said she and other attendees hid in a storage closet as people ran in every direction.

"Several gunshots were fired but no one was hit as of right now.. that we know of and no arrests have been made," Sgt. Milton Coker, with sheriff's office said.

Witnesses said the brawl involved as many as 40 people, interrupting a sacred moment in the remembrance of Broussard.

Deputies believe it started after an alleged Brown Pride member was seen inside the church.

"They had nothing to do up in here.. none of their people was in heretheyre the ones that took Joshuas life.. they dont belong up in here," Brandon Odom, a friend of Broussard, said. If somebody came to your funeral that killed you, your people would feel bad too. Everyones trying to come up in here. Thats disrespectful."

Hours earlier, community leaders gathered outside Spring High School to address gang problems and the racial divide between African American and Latino students. Activists joined hands pleading for the tension to stop.

Evidently, some smart crooked deceptive spirit has come into our community and come into our children and they have us thinking were so different we should be violent toward one another," Deric Muhammad, a community activist, said.

And on the eve of the first day back at school theres proof that the fighting isnt over.

"Hopefully, theyll find God and find a way to make a better chance. Just pray for Spring and everybody that goes to Spring tomorrow morning," Joe Belir, a cousin of Broussard, said.

A number of security measures will be in place to protect everybody once students and staff return to the campus on Monday.
