Suspect shot, killed during Henderson home invasion

HENDERSON, N.C.

Chopper 11 HD flew over the scene at a home on Lynnbank Road in Henderson.

A family member of two teens who live at the house says a 14-year-old boy and his 17-year-old sister were home alone Thursday morning when someone broke into the home through the back door.

Someone at the home confirmed a shooting took place, and Vance County officials say the suspect was killed.

The relative says the boy took steps to "protect his sister," but neither of the teens were injured.

The family member says she heard there was a second person involved and that as far as they knew, that person was still on the loose.
