The family was on the porch on the second floor balcony when Allen was shot in the incident that happened last Tuesday in the 8500 block of Richmond Avenue near Dunvale in southwest Houston. The family said they heard about six shots rang.
“He just told me to get him some juice, that’s why I stepped in the house to get him some juice,” Allen Sr. recalled as reported by abc13. And the next thing he would hear was his injured son calling for help.
This is Jordan Allen Jr. The 5 year old boy lost his life after being hit with a stray bullet. He was struck while recording TikTok videos with his dad on their balcony.

“Everybody ran in the house and the kids’ room in the house, so I ran to the porch, and then I see my son on the ground holding his head asking for my help,” Allen Sr. said.
Junior Allen was taken off life support Monday at Texas Children’s Hospital a week after his fatal shooting.
“The happiest child in the world. Jordan…. he would bring joy to everybody,” the father said of the son he last saw Monday morning.
