Teen shot in McKinney; homeowner says he fired at intruder

McKinney police are investigating a pair of 911 calls in which a resident reported shooting an intruder in his home, followed by the parents of a 13-year-old boy reporting that their son had been shot.

The boy was being treated at a Dallas hospital for a gunshot wound "which was not self-inflicted," police said.

While officers sort out the details, they do believe the incidents might be related, said Lt. Scott Brewer, police spokesman.

The first incident was reported 6:34 a.m. at a home in the 3400 block of Steamboat Drive on the south side of McKinney.

"The resident, who lives alone, stated he contacted 911 after he observed a figure inside his home," Brewer said in a news release. "He retrieved a firearm, fired a shot, and the figure left."

Police received the second call about two minutes later from a home "in the same neighborhood," Brewer said.

"The parents of a 13 year-old male called 911 and reported that their son sustained a gunshot wound, which was not self-inflicted," Brewer said.

A helicopter ambulance took the boy to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, but his medical condition was unavailable late Thursday morning.
