17-Year-Old Boy Killed After Girl Sneaks Him In Home & Dad Mistakes Him for Burglar

A man shot and killed what he thought was an intruder in his home before finding out that the victim was a 17-year-old boy that was let in the home by his daughter! Check out the details below….

The slain teenager, identified in a news release obtained by the Augusta Chronicle as Jordan Middleton, was let into the family’s home in Grovetown to visit with the 14-year-old girl, according to authorities.

Deputies with the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office found Middleton dead around 2:50 a.m. after they were called to investigate reports of a burglary in progress. He was found in the home’s foyer with a gunshot wound to the chest, deputies said.

The homeowner told deputies that he heard noises coming from downstairs early Saturday and armed himself to investigate the sounds. He found the family dog barking at the guest bedroom, deputies said.

He said that he was armed and demanded the intruder identify himself. When a second warning was met with silence, the man went into the room, deputies said.

He spotted Middleton running out of the room’s closet, and shot him in the upper chest, according to authorities.

“He was just a great kid,” Evans High School basketball coach Kevin Kenny¬†told WJBF. “(He was) very likable, always had a smile on his face.”

No charges have been filed in the case. Authorities continue to investigate. – via ajc
