HOME ALONE

11-Year-Old Shoots Intruder

A St. Louis County 11-year-old shot a teenage home intruder Thursday, on the teen’s alleged third attempt to break into the home where the younger boy was alone with his 4-year-old sister. The 16-year-old was hit in the head, and later died. Despite police descriptions of the home intrusion, however, some neighbors say they believe the 11-year-old was really the aggressor. They describe him playing with the gun earlier in the day, and calling the teenager over before shooting him.
