Police Shoot Teen At Fountain Valley Apartment Complex

FOUNTAIN VALLEY (AP) — Officials say a juvenile man has been shot by police after he fired a rifle at a Fountain Valley apartment complex.

Police Sgt. Eric Orahood tells the Orange County Register that the shooting occurred after a resident called police to say that a man, armed with a handgun, had forced his way into the resident’s apartment Tuesday.

After the resident fled the building, the suspect re-emerged with a rifle as police were setting up a perimeter.

Orahood says the 17-year-old man ignored demands to drop the weapon and fired several rounds that hit a tree and other apartment units.

Officers returned fire, striking the young man several times. He was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

    Juvenile man??

    Try male juvenile or boy if you want to get the point across that he was underage. Or 17-year-old, not 17-year-old man. Contradiction in tems.

    Really?

    ROFL. So, is the AP calling this guy an immature man, or couldn’t they figure out if a 17 year old is a man or still a juvenile? (Pssst, by law he’s still a juvie). Or maybe they were trying to come up to an alternative to “young man.”

    Fail.
