Juvenile shot, killed during Yucca Valley burglary

A juvenile was shot and killed while attempting to burglarize a Yucca Valley home Wednesday evening, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

The incident happened about 6:30 p.m. in the 2800 block of Longview Avenue when the teenager and another juvenile tried to break into a home.

A third suspect, 18-year-old Duncan Nicholson, waited outside in a getaway vehicle, according to the sheriff’s department.

An investigation determined the homeowner pulled out a gun when he heard somone knocking at his door. He armed himself because his home was robbed several times in the past month.

The juvenile and two suspects are suspected of committing the burglaries, according to the sheriff’s department.

The homeowner fired his gun when the two juveniles forced their way into the home, killing one of them and hitting the second suspect in his arm.

The two remaining suspects fled the scene, but later returned with the juvenile’s father.

The younger suspect was booked into a local juvenile hall and Nicholson was taken to the Morongo Basin Jail, both on murder charges.
