NORTHGLENN |  Two teen boys were killed in a shootout with a resident of a home in Northglenn, 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.

Good shooting, resident!
Thank you for stopping the two criminals from harming others. (Another source reports thathe two are suspected in a burglary.) (Why not mentioned here?)

Sorry thathe armed criminals caused the residento shoot.

Like anyonelse, a criminal’s life is of infinite value.
I would never shoot a criminal over material possessions.
I would only fire warning shots – center mass.

More to the story coming I’m sure… Why did the homeowner go to his backyard armed,? If he ( I’m sure it was a he) confronted them and they pulled a gun, rather run? Guess he’s justified. Need more info. I’m certain there were cameras right?
