Teen ‘Grave’ After Being Shot In The Eye Through Front Door Peephole
I'm inclined to think that there is more to it.
There was an attempted break in, shots were fired at the intruders. Later in the day shots were fired at the house and now the young man is shot in the eye. That's a lot of effort and risk for revenge by your average crooks.

There's a LOT more to this, sounds a bit like gang bangers and someone who's dealing some drugs. Just my thoughts as I read it.

Chief Justice John Roberts : "I don't see how you can read Heller and not take away from it the notion that the Second Amendment...was extremely important to the framers in their view of what liberty meant."
Yep, I believe there's more to this story than meets the eye... pardon the pun. But it sounds drug or gang related.

Makes a pretty good case for a camera system that allows for remote (away from the front door) viewing of who is near the door.

Last year we had a guy tied up with drug dealers get shot in the eye while he was standing in a parking lot. He survived but with serious long term issues. The shooter was arrested. Witnesses were threatened. Right before the trial was to start, fellow gang members found our victim again standing in the same parking lot. They shot him in the other eye and a few other places. He died. Other witnesses dried up.

A few years back in Sarasota, guy shoots gang member in SD, a few days later several other gang member come roaring up to his property bent on revenge and the guy has to shoot them too (can't recall if all three were killed or not). I think he ended up moving because of the threats and/or his house was burned. So I say it could easily be simple retaliation and not the victim being involved in drugs.
