One person is dead and another wounded after a violent home invasion ended in gunfire in Goldsboro, North Carolina early Saturday morning.
Investigators say a 12-year-old boy shot and killed one of two men who had entered the apartment of 73-year-old Linda Ellis, the boy's grandmother.
Officials said the two masked men forced their way into the apartment and demanded money. At least one of the suspects, identified as 19-year-old Khalil Herring, was armed, and allegedly shot Ellis.
At that point, the 12-year-old boy shot at the men, striking Herring, and they fled.
