Suspected intruder fatally shot in Greene County
GREENEVILLE, Tenn. - A teenager has been fatally shot by a man who said his mobile home was being burglarized.

The Greeneville Sun quoted Greene County Sheriff Steve Burns who identified the dead youth as 17-year-old Michael E.A. Banner.

Alan Burch, who lives in a mobile home, told investigators he fired shots toward the entrance door after being awakened late Thursday by someone kicking the door open.

Burch said he then found at least one of the shots struck the teen. A deputy reported he was found lying on the front porch.

The sheriff said three other persons were with Banner and police have an idea who they are.

1. Kicking in the door?
Wouldn't that be a home invasion?

3. I don't think I've ever seen
the door on a mobile open inward. Either the kid didn't know that, or there is more to the story.

5. Kick an old style aluminium clad mobile home door dead center...
And it will bow like Robin Hood. They only keep honest people honest, really.

8. They're a treat.
We hit one one night, a good hard bump pushed the frame and all in to the living room. Our suspect was just sitting there on the couch drinking a beer and looking all :wow: shocked. He had the stereo cranked up so high he couldn't hear us knocking.
