The investigation into a body found has prompted a nearby school in east Harris County to delay classes until 10:15 a.m. on Thursday.

The investigation is unfolding in front of Harvey Brown Elementary School in Channelview ISD.

It all began with deputies responding to the 16600 block of Wallisville and Ranch Paloma, where a body was found in the road.

It didn’t appear that the body was there as the result of a deadly crash, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said, adding that it may be the person was dumped out of a vehicle.

According to Gonzalez, a burglary occurred nearby where a homeowner followed a suspect and they exchanged gunfire, but it’s unclear at this time if the incidents are connected.

Wallisville Road is closed in both directions.

Reporters are heading to the scene to gather more facts. This story will be updated as soon as more information is available.
