A teenage girl from Colorado Springs was shot and killed by her stepfather early this morning after being mistaken for a home invader.
The unidentified 14-year-old was apparently attempting to sneak back into her house after a night out when she was shot by her stepdad.
Local police say the man called 911 around 6 a.m. to report a burglary in progress. Officers responding to the scene found the injured teen in the basement.
Emergency services rushed the victim to a nearby hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.
