Homeowner Kills Teen Burglary Suspect
A homeowner shot and killed a burglary suspect Monday morning in the southeast Dallas neighborhood of Pleasant Grove and two more suspects were in custody.
The shooting happened at about 11 a.m. in the 7300 block of Vallejo Drive, near Jim Miller and Bruton roads.
According to police, three youngsters rang the doorbell and then ran to the back of the home, prompting the homeowner to call 911.
The trio then allegedly kicked in the back door and entered the home, where the unidentified resident opened fire, killing 14-year-old Luis Avila.
Two other 13 and 14-year-old suspects fled the scene and were later arrested. They face burglary charges, police said.
