DeKalb Co. homeowner fires at teens during home invasion

Posted: Updated:
DEKALB COUNTY, GA -

A robbery didn't go as planned for three DeKalb County teenagers. Investigators say they forced their way into a home, but the owner was inside with a gun, and fired at the teens.

Investigators say three teens were inside a stolen car. Then, two of them broke into the home of the armed homeowner. That's when police say the 21-year-old who lives in the house opened fire.

Two suspects ran, and the getaway driver took off.

A 14-year-old and 15-year-old were taken to the hospital.

The other 15-year-old was taken into custody.
