Five Chicago teenagers are being charged with murder after a 14-year-old who was with them was shot and killed by a homeowner during an alleged burglary attempt, according to authorities.
Deputies from the Lake County Sheriff's Office were called to a home in Old Mill Creek, Illinois, about 47 miles north of Chicago, Tuesday around 1:15 a.m. following the shooting, Detective Sgt. Chris Covelli told reporters in a news conference.
The 75-year-old homeowner told deputies he went outside after noticing a suspicious SUV in his driveway and several people on his property, whom he believed were attempting to break into and steal his car, a 2011 Audi, Covelli said.

You MUST go to the article, scroll down and look at the picture of the only 18 year old perp in the bunch.
You have to do it. Trust me.

What would the Amish Yutes do with a car?
One less street thug who will get older and become a big street thug.
“Teen” is a stupid designation. It exists because of a peculiarity of English. It makes people think that a 13 year old is the same as a 19 year old. Wrong. Big difference! When they want us to feel sorry for a 19 year old hardened criminal, they call him a “teen.” Doesn’t work with me.

Seeing as this happened at around 1 AM, that might not have been such a good idea. This was not a home invasion. Call the cops first. Wait a moment, and then go outside if you must.
And yes, I know that police response time can be long, they might shoot you instead, etc. But the homeowner was outnumbered. He is fortunate that none of the thugs were armed. This story could have ended differently.
Could have been Obamas son.... what a loser.
Vlad, I read the entire article before I post.
Planet if the Apes star!
Pretty much what I expected, based upon the snip and the area...
Hitch a horse to it and go downtown?
Whatever gender Diamond identifies as looked like Coolio...
It looks like his upper skull is too small for his face. Or maybe it’s just the perspective.
This is just some of the many teens that are effected by gun violence every year according to national statistics database!! The guns are killing our babys!!! (sarcasm off) Wonder where a buch of 16 and 17 year olds got an Escalade?
Teens. There is that word again
All five of the people in custody live in Chicago, according to Covelli.
The Lexus was reported stolen from Wilmette on Aug. 11, Covelli said.
