Investigators with the Harris County Sheriff's Office were still on the scene late Monday night at a home in the 18000 block of Oden Trace Drive.

Investigators said they received a 911 call from a neighbor around 4 p.m.

A 17-year-old and his 12-year-old sister were home alone when a second teenager entered the home and started to attack the 17-year-old with a knife.

"We’re thinking the front door might have been unlocked," said Sgt. Cedric Collier with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. "When he entered the residence the sister went next door for help cause the guy wouldn’t leave."

That neighbor, who is reportedly an off-duty Houston firefighter, grabbed a gun and went to help.

"Upon his arrival he found a suspect with blood on him attacking the neighbor," said Collier. "The neighbor pulled out a weapon, discharged the weapon one time, striking the suspect once, then he proceeded to help the victim."

The suspect died at the scene and the 17-year-old victim died from several stab wounds.

Investigators said it doesn’t appear to be random but they haven’t confirmed if the two knew each other or what the motive was.

Family and friends tells KPRC the victim’s name was Tyler Wade. He was a senior at Tomball Memorial High School. His family described him as an "all American kid" who had a lot of friends.

The suspect in the case has not been identified.

A 21-year-old man has been identified as the suspect in the stabbing death of 17-year-old Tyler Wade in northwest Harris County.

According to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, Pablo Sanchez entered Wade's home in the 18600 block of Oden Trace Drive at about 4 p.m. Monday carrying a baseball bat and wearing latex gloves.

Wade's 12-year-old sister spotted Sanchez heading to a second-floor bedroom where Wade, a Tomball Memorial High student, was taking a shower. Sheriff's deputies said Sanchez was carrying a knife along with a baseball bat at the time.

Sanchez attacked Wade in the shower, stabbing him several times as the teenager struggled for his life. The 12-year-old sister, who witnessed the attack, ran to a neighbor's home.

The neighbor got a handgun and went and confronted Sanchez, ordering him to drop his knife.

When Sanchez approached the neighbor with the knife still in hand, the neighbor shot him, officials said.

Both Sanchez and Wade were pronounced dead at the scene.
