Schools boost security after Texas party shootings

Posted:
HOUSTON (AP) -

Security is being boosted and grief counselors provided by a suburban Houston school district following a shooting at a house party that left two teenagers dead.

Katy school district spokesman Steve Stanford said Monday that one of the teens killed late Saturday -- 17-year-old Queric Richardson -- was a student at Morton Ranch High School. The other teen has not been identified.

Stanford says some students at the school were among the more than 100 who attended the party in nearby Cypress. He says police will provide extra patrols to reassure anxious students.

Harris County authorities said the day after the shooting that the teens who were killed were students in Cypress.

Another 20 people were injured in the burst of gunfire. Authorities are seeking two gunmen.
