    St. Louis boy, 11, left alone with sister shoots and kills persistent teen intruder
    (CNN)An 11-year-old left at home to defend himself and his 4-year-old sister staved off several home invasion attempts before finally shooting and killing a 16-year-old intruder, police say.

    Police officers arrived after 2 p.m. Thursday to the home on Hallwood Drive in north St. Louis County to discover the body of a 16-year-old lying in the front foyer.

    The boy, whose name has not been released, had been shot in the head while breaking into the home, according to police. He was shot by the 11-year-old boy who lived inside, and who -- along with his 4-year-old sister -- had been left there alone.

    Sgt. Brian Schellman said it was third time that the 16-year-old had attempted to break into that house that day. Neither sibling was hurt in the incident.

    It wasn't immediately known Thursday why the two were left alone in the first place or why an 11-year-old had access to a firearm, but police said the mother was cooperating with the investigation.

    CNN affiliate KTVI/KPLR reported the mother, whose name has not been released, purchased the handgun because of prior attempted break-ins.

    It is the third deadly incident involving children and guns in that section of St. Louis in recent weeks.

    On August 18, 9-year-old Jamyla Bolden was shot and killed while doing homework while lying in her mother's bed.

    A week later, 21-month-old Carter Epps died after being shot in the torso.

    Why would he do that to an undocumented occupant? That's so wrong.

    It is, but I would like to know the answers to these questions:

    "It wasn't immediately known Thursday why the two were left alone in the first place or why an 11-year-old had access to a firearm…"

    As would I. However, I'm glad he had access to the firearm and knew how to use it responsibly.

    Interesting how they attempt to group this with two children being shot as a "deadly incident involving children". As if this one doesn't deserve a high five.

    Or his mother just didn't bother to hide it or lock it up and the kid got lucky with his shot. But maybe he was taught how to properly handle a gun. That still leaves the big question as to why he was left home with a 4 year old. Especially after they had prior attempted break-ins. The mom was scared enough to buy a gun and then leaves them alone?

    Where I live, kids younger than 11 can be left home alone for a limited amount of time. Don't know how long they were alone. :dontknow:

    That's what I got from reading between the lines on wikipedia. Plus it doesn't sound real good from the mentions in the article of the other incidents.

    North County
    North County is home to Boeing's Defense, Space & Security unit, Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, and Emerson Electric Company. The population is one of the most diverse in St. Louis County. Public transportation has been beneficial to North County and was the first area of Metro St. Louis served by the metropolitan rail system, MetroLink. Cities of North County also include Bellefontaine Neighbors, Bridgeton, Ferguson, Florissant, Jennings and Spanish Lake. Residents of some communities, such as Bridgeton and Hazelwood, often distinguish themselves from locations further north by labeling their area as "Northwest County." North St. Louis County is not only diverse in racial makeup but also by socioeconomic means. There are numerous black and mixed raced villages located in North-Central county along the Natural Bridge Corridor east of Interstate 170 including Glen Echo Park, Bellerive, Bel-Ridge, Bel-Nor, and Pasadena Hills, second to Olympia Fields, Illinois as the most affluent majority black community north of the Mason-Dixon line. Some of the inner-ring suburbs located between Interstate 70 and Interstate 270 along the city-county line show past and current signs of white flight.
