11 year old boy defends home in St. Louis
St. Louis police report that an 11 year old boy defended himself and his 4 year old sister after a 16 year old male tried to invade the house. When the police arrived at the house, the 16 year old boy had been shot in the head and killed. A neighbor close by said that the teen had never entered the house, but that he had been standing on the porch the whole time, yelling at the two children inside. The police do not know why the children were at home without supervision, but the parents are okay with investigation. It is the third incident involving children and guns in the area within the last 3 weeks.
