Police Identify Slain Houston CAN Academy Student, 19

Police have identified a 19-year-old Houston CAN Academy student who was fatally shot during an argument in the school parking lot.

Houston police on Tuesday said no one has been arrested in the gunfire that claimed the life of Adrian Castillo and left another student wounded.

Investigators haven't released a possible motive for the shootings Monday afternoon.

A police statement says witnesses told officers that Castillo and another male were in a pickup truck in the parking lot when they were blocked by an SUV.

Several suspects got out of the SUV, opened fire on Castillo and the other student and then fled.

Police say the victims drove to a medical facility a few miles away, but Castillo died.

The wounded student was hospitalized in stable condition.
