One teenage boy fatally shot another boy who police say was breaking into his South Fort Worth home Wednesday evening.
Armed with a knife, the boy who was shot broke into the home in the 800 block of Buffalo Springs Drive about 5:30 p.m., said Fort Worth police spokesman Lt. Paul Henderson. The boys got into a fight, during which the resident was cut, Lt. Henderson said.
The resident broke free, grabbed his father's handgun and fired several times, killing the other boy, police said.
The boy who was cut was taken to Cook Children's Medical Center and was in stable condition. Lt. Henderson said that it was unclear whether the boys knew each other, and that charges against the boy are not likely.
Names of the two boys were not released Wednesday night.
