15-Year Old Shot, Killed During Burglary

Police are investigating a burglary report in Bowling Green that led to the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old boy.

Police say a homeowner called them on Thursday to say he had
just shot a person who was breaking into his house. The juvenile
victim has not been identified. His body was sent to Louisville for
an autopsy.

Police have not named the homeowner, who told a 911 operator
just after 5 p.m. CST that he was asleep when he heard someone
trying to break into his house. The man said he shot the burglar.
The boy was pronounced dead at the scene from a gunshot wound.
