The 17-year-old boy was unarmed.
He was discovered around 2:30 a.m. after the girl’s younger brother noticed two feet sticking from underneath his sister’s bed and went to tell his father.
The father, who has not been identified, grabbed his gun and ran to his daughter’s room where he confronted who he thought was an intruder.
