GOLDSBORO, N.C. – A man who forced his way into an apartment with an accomplice was fatally shot by a 12-year-old child who was inside, according to authorities in North Carolina.

Goldsboro police said two masked people forced their way into the residence, demanded money and shot a 73-year-old woman who was in the home shortly after 12:30 a.m. local time Saturday.

The child shot at the intruders in self-defense, causing them to flee, authorities said.

The 73-year-old woman was identified by police as Linda Ellis. 

The intruder “just shot his grandma,” Ellis’ son, Randolph Bunn, told ABC11. “I don’t know why they shot her.”

Meanwhile, police found Khalil Herring, 19, of Goldsboro at a nearby intersection suffering from a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Evidence suggests that he was one of the two intruders, police said.
