According to police, a teenager asked a 16-year-old acquaintance if
he could stay the night, claiming he was experiencing problems at
home. The acquaintance agreed, presumably under the impression the
teen was a friend, but this was no friendly visit. Once invited
inside by the 16-year-old and his mother, the teen left the front
door unlocked. During the night, two youths used the unlocked door
to rush inside with a shot-gun and pistol. While they demanded
money, the mother snuck into a back bedroom to phone police and a
neighbor for help. The neighbor, armed with a firearm, showed up
first and held the would-be robbers at gunpoint until police
arrived. As police handcuffed the boys, they discovered that the
teen who had been invited to stay the night also had a gun.
