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.
