TOMBALL, Texas (AP) - Investigators say a Houston-area teenager stabbed to death while taking a shower was attacked by a man carrying a knife and a baseball bat.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says a neighbor fatally shot the suspect, 21-year-old Pablo Sanchez, during the attack at the victim’s home in Tomball.

Authorities are trying to determine a motive for Monday afternoon’s slaying of 17-year-old Tyler Wade.

Sgt. Cedrick Collier says the front door might have been unlocked when Sanchez entered the victim’s home. The teenager’s 12-year-old sister ran next door to get help from a neighbor, who returned with a gun and shot Sanchez to stop the attack.

Counselors are available at Tomball Memorial High School, where the victim was a senior.
