Police identify teenager slain in home-invasion shootout : Local News : Knoxville News Sentinel
What is there to decide re: bringing charges? Surely they can't considering bringing charges against the victim?Authorities this morning said a 16-year-old Knoxville boy was killed during a weekend home break-in that prompted a gun battle inside the residence.
Jamodd Mack died in the 2:24 a.m. Saturday break-in at 1304 Iredell Ave., said Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk.
Mack and another person allegedly forced their way into the home through a back door, DeBusk said. Inside the home, Mack, who was armed with a handgun, was fired upon by a man who was visiting the woman who lives in the house, DeBusk.
After the gun battle between the two people armed with handguns, Mack died in the house of multiple bullet wounds, DeBusk said. No one else in the home was injured during the gunfight, he said.
The second male fled and has not been identified, DeBusk said.
No charges have been filed in connection with the slaying. DeBusk said police planned to take their probe to the Knox County District Attorney General's office for a decision on bringing any charges.
More details as they develop online and in Tuesday's News Sentinel.

When are these dumb butt kids ever going to learn?
The abject stupidity and amoral behavior exhibited by the current crop of youth defies credence.
We have a long way to go!
GUN CONTROL= I WANT TO BE THE ONE IN CONTROL OF THE GUN
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
I bet within 24 hours there will be a news piece quoting a sobbing mother saying her son was a "good boy" who didn't deserve to be shot...
Notice that the media (in all their glory) call's it a "slaying"
Unless there is more to this story then is being told, there should be no reason to bring charges.
Sad thing is, these day's you're probably more likely to get shot in a robbery by a 16yr old, then by a 36yr old.
When Guns Are Outlawed, Only Outlaws will have guns
Just remember, When seconds count help is mere minutes away
Also remember, When you go to trial by jury you are putting yourself into the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.
All I can think of right now is how the Brady bunch is gonna add that idot to their "Kids who are killed by guns" stats
-Never insult a man you are not prepared to fight, and never fight a man you are not prepared to kill.
If more of this type of unfortunate incidents happen, home invasions would likely decline.
Well that one learned the hard way did he not.When are these dumb butt kids ever going to learn?
The idiot's family now has to live with the fact that their "innocent little baby" has perma-smeared the family name with robbery and attempted murder. I hope, now, that when they teach their other children of the meaning of life that they also teach them of the meaning of death with dishonor.
Slaying? Are they serious? What could he expect? Perhaps that the residents were unarmed and at his mercy? Too bad. I'm glad the homeowners were armed.
What charges could they legally face? Tennessee has a castle doctrine, correct? Someone breaks into your house in the middle of the night with a gun... sounds completely justifiable to me.
Better to die quick, fighting on your feet;
Than to live forever, begging on your knees.
Oh well, I guess that leaves some extra oxygen for the law abiding citizens to use.
Murder charges for the one that got away?
...Good shoot IMHO.
If guns are outlawed, only outlaws would have guns.
