Full title: Homeowner shot a 14-year-old during burglary attempt. The 5 other teens with him were charged with murder
Five Chicago teens are being charged with murder after a 14-year-old who was with them during an attempted burglary was shot by the homeowner, authorities said Tuesday.
The group traveled in a stolen Lexus to an Illinois home where they were confronted by the 75-year-old homeowner, according to the Lake County Illinois Sheriff's Office. The man went out to investigate and told authorities he believed someone was trying to steal his car, a 2011 Audi.
"At least one of the male subjects advanced toward him with an unknown object in his hand," officials said in a release. "The homeowner feared for his life and discharged a firearm."
At least one of the rounds from the small caliber revolver struck the 14-year-old, and a knife was later found at the scene of the shooting. The homeowner called 911 to report the attempted burglary and shots fired, but by the time police arrived all of the suspects had fled.

Felony murder doctrine.
Everyone imagine clearly what it would be like to face six “teens” like that.
Hope the lawyer will say that in more detailed and emotional terms to the jurors. If our society forces him to face jurors.
3..2...1 before: He was a good boy just in wrong place. If he was a bad dude, he be carrying a gun, not a knife as he was using it to spread some cheese on his crackers when he was accosted by some old guy carrying an assault pistol.
The others heard the barrage of gun fire and borrowed a car to take him to the hospital. They just sped off before they realized he was not yet in the car.
Teens have a second chance. They’ll become conservatives maybe or double down? Teens always push the envelope until someone finally pushes back hard. Hopeful learning lesson.
Black lives matter crowd will arrive in five, four.....
CNN will report that “he was about to get a rap scholarship at the Hop Hop School of Illiteracy on three, two....
Sharpton will sue in two, one....
And the beat goes on.
Im guessing that this kids family has been saved years of pain and heart ache.
This kid was just getting started on his life of crime.
The old saying is and has always been
“Don’t mess with old dudes, they don’t play”
This is so sad. The homeowner probably has bloodstains and tire marks all over his driveway.
“Teens have a second chance. Theyll become conservatives maybe or double down? Teens always push the envelope until someone finally pushes back hard. Hopeful learning lesson.”
I think they’re way beyond that in this case.
I’ve seen it worded:
“Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he’s too old to fight he’ll just kill you.”
Everyone imagine clearly what it would be like to face six teens like that.
That’s why we need autoloaders and high capacity magazines.
If I lived close by, I'd volunteer to come over and pressure wash his driveway.
Yes, that’s how the law works.
Even for “teens”.
Teens again, must have been on their way to church but got lost and just wanted directions..........
How many of the six teens had a father in the house?
