2 teens fatally shot in shootout with resident of home
NORTHGLENN, Colo. (AP) — Two teen boys were killed in a shootout with a resident of a home in suburban Denver, Colorado, after they were suspected of trespassing into the backyard, police said Monday.
The teens, whose names and ages were not released, were shot in Northglenn on Sunday afternoon, said Renae Lehr, a spokesperson for the city’s police department. When approached by the resident, there was an exchange of gunfire, with at least one of the teens firing a gun along with the resident, according to the preliminary investigation, she said.
It is believed the boys broke a fence to get into the backyard, Lehr said.
No arrests have been made, she said.
