A Catoosa County teen died Monday after a homeowner caught him and another boy attempting to rob his residence.
Catoosa County Sheriff Gary Sisk said two teenage boys, 16 and 17, were attempting to break into a home about 4 p.m. in the 2500 block of Post Oak Road off Boynton Drive. The 69-year-old homeowner confronted the boys, who continued to run towards him, Sisk said in a news release. The man shot shot the 17-year-old in the neck. Sisk said he later died at a hospital.
The 16-year-old boy and 18-year-old Ansley Erin Chrnalogar, who was waiting on the two teens in a car, were arrested on burglary charges.
