A teenager was outside her home in St. Louis, Mo. when two armed men came up to her and forced her inside her home at gunpoint. The teenager’s parents were inside the home at the time, and both parents responded by retrieving firearms. The teenager’s father fired at the home invaders, killing one and wounding the other. The injured criminal fled, but was captured by police a short time later.
The surviving home invader has been charged with murder, in the death of his accomplice, burglary, and kidnapping. (The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, St. Louis, Mo. 06/11/14)
