One victim told investigators he was asleep in the home when two youths woke him up and taped his hands and feet, Bill Goodin, police spokesman, said. The two were ransacking the house when another homeowner arrived.The home invader, a 15-year-old kid, was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
The second homeowner told police he saw one of the intruders in the living room. That youth fired one shot at the victim, who returned fire, police said. The second invader fled out a side door.
The Brady Campaign, will count this as a "teen tragically shot." The fact that the teen was armed, and was shot in self-defense, or the fact that he was committing a home invasion, just doesn't interest the gun-controllers. (Why clutter the issue with facts?)
The police are still searching for the other home invader; they have leads regarding his identity.
Self-defense is a human right.
