    Chesapeake teen shot trying to enter wrong house

    A teenager received minor injuries in an early morning shooting Sunday. The 16-year-old was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.

    At 3:13 a.m. Sunday, Chesapeake Police responded to a call about a home invasion in the 1100 block of Old Vintage Road, in the Vintage Estates area off Johnstown Road. Police spokesman Charles Thiebaed said police heard two shots when they arrived.

    Police said the teenager had been drinking and was trying to get into a house he thought was his but actually was a neighbor's. The neighbor fired two shots at the teen, hitting him once, according to police.

    Police are investigating the incident

    That's what happens when you try to forcibly enter a house that's not yours - impaired or not.

    You know, I've been drunk in my life, but never that drunk. OK, maybe even that drunk when I was much younger and dumber, but I never even ended up in the wrong barracks room (and they all look the same!) much less the wrong house...

    Hope the kid is OK and learns a lesson, and that the homeowner was justified and isn't charged.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Sad situation but I can't say that I would have done anything different if I were the homeowner.

    The young impaired man just paid a pretty high price to learn a pretty cheap lesson.

    The kicker is that the kid is SIXTEEN and he is out getting drunk on a SUNDAY night.

    Where are the parents in all of this? What the heck is going there?

    So far, no charges have been filed against the homeowner.

    I hope that I wouldn't have made the same decision. I was always taught to identify the target first before firing. If this had been done, one might have taken the time to realize its just a drunk neighbor boy with no weapon and properly escort him to his parents house.
