(Scroll down for video) A mother was shocked to learn that her son, who was accepted into Howard University, was killed after breaking into a home.

Police said that two people were killed during the attempted robbery at a home in Texas.

Terrence Neal Tusan, 22, had a promising career as a football player and was well liked by his teammates at Howard University.

Tusan was identified as one of the two suspects found dead at an apartment complex in Denton over the weekend, after allegedly breaking into the home with two accomplices.

Tusan and Jakobi Dmon Gipson, 18, of Arlington, are accused of covering their faces and forcing their way into the apartment before the shooting erupted.

Tusan was found dead outside the apartment in the 1500 block of Meadow St. Gipson’s body was discovered inside the apartment, police said.

The news surprised her mother, Donna Tusan, as she had no idea what her son was doing in that area. Howard came home for the holidays and boasted about his good grades at the Howard University, before he broke into the home with his accomplices.

Police are not sure if the attempted robbery was drug related, but the victims have since moved out of the apartment.

Two guns were reportedly recovered in the apartment. One belonged to the victim and the other was in the possession of the suspects.
