14 Year Old Girl Mistaken As Burglar Is Killed By Stepfather
Another tragic killing in Colorado. This time, it’s in Colorado Springs. It’s a breaking story, so there’s not much information yet.
Police spokesman Larry Herbert gave a statement saying that Monday morning, around 6 a.m., a call was made of a burglary-in-progress. When police arrived on the 4300 block of Ascendant Drive, off North Carefree Circle and Peterson Road, they found a 14 year-old girl had been shot by her step-father. She was taken to an area hospital where she died of gunshot wounds.
The names of the 14 year-old and her stepfather will not be released by police, who said there was an ongoing investigation. No arrests have been made.
The Gazette will report more on the story as they obtain information.
Take a look at the photo where this happened. It has an ADT alarm system sign in the front lawn. Isn’t that suppose to deter burglars?
