How devastating. As the reporter points out, the kid wasn't breaking into the home because he needed money or drugs; him and his friends were just doing something they weren't supposed to be doing.
The police haven't released any details other than the other two boys ran when the homeowner confronted them with a gun, but Devron didn't.
I'm sure the homeowner is torn up about this as well. That the parents aren't blaming anyone, and are using this as a warning to other kids says a lot about their character. Good on them.
