Two teenage brothers and football standouts in Texas, shot and killed in cold blood

Texas brothers shot and killed in cold blood
Two young teenage brothers were shot and killed in Fresno, Texas. The two young men were both football players. Please pray for their family.

This weekend in Texas, two young boys were shot and killed in a deadly shooting. The two young boys were brothers according to reports from ABC 13.

15-year-old Devin Massey and 17-year-old Jonathan Massey were killed in the 300 block of Broadmore near FM-521 around 8 p.m.

Deputies also located a third victim on the scene who was taken by ambulance to a hospital in the Texas Medical Center with serious injuries. Preliminary information suggests unknown suspects wearing masks and driving an unknown vehicle pulled up to the driveway and began firing at the three males inside the parked car, according to records. Gunfire was exchanged briefly before the suspects fled, per a report.

Devin was a Freshman football player, and Jonathan was a junior at Ridge Point. The two boys played football, and were killed in cold blood. The family released this statement.

“With the greatest sorrow ever, I give a statement on behalf of the family. Our children were randomly murdered last night and we would like to ask for prayers and justice. It Is beyond senseless and cruel to kill our babies under any circumstances. Even more so without rhyme or reason. God Is head of our family and Jojo and Devin are now walking streets of gold and wearing wings over us left behind. As parents we ask for any leads big or small. Social media posts, cameras and whatever else could lead to the capture of these ruthless murderers. As Christians we ask for prayers and unity. As humans we ask the gunmen to please turn to God and turn yourself into police. Get this off your chest before judgement day.
We want our boys to be remembered for their respectful character and their charismatic, fun loving ways. Their talents on and off the football field since birth. Their loyalty to their family and kindness to their friends never wavered. Their spirit will always make us smile through the humorous memories of our two young boys.
To my sweet Jojo and Devin, your life was shortened but your impact is mighty and forever powerful.”

A Go Fund Me account was set up for the young boys. Please keep them in your prayers.
