The sister and cousin of a black teen shot and killed by a Miami homeowner protecting her property are complaining that people need to see the break-in from the teen’s point of view: “How he gonna get his money to have clothes to go to school?”
The home had been burglarized in the past, and the homeowner had put up security cameras which alerted her to the break-in by 17-year-old Trevon Johnson. The 54-year-old homeowner rushed home in time to see Johnson exiting the home. There was a confrontation, say detectives, and a single shot was fired, killing Johnson.
