Teen Robber Shot And Killed By Homeowner 5-03-2011

Police in the Detroit suburb of Warren say a homeowner fatally shot a knife-wielding teenage boy who broke into his home.
Police Lt. Michael Torey said the boy entered the home about 10 a.m. Monday.
Torey told The Detroit News that the commotion woke the homeowner, who grabbed a shotgun and confronted the knife-holding teen.
Torey said the homeowner fired one shot, which struck the teen in the leg.
The lieutenant said the youth jumped out the window and collapsed in the back yard.
Torey said the teen died at a hospital.
WDIV-TV reports the homeowner is 31 and the intruder was 17.
It said medical marijuana was being grown at the home.
The lieutenant said so far, it appears the shooting was justifiable.
The teen's name was immediately released.
