CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Police are investigating after shots were fired into a house near Charlotte where a 14-year-old boy earlier shot and killed an intruder

Area media outlets report the shots fired into the house near the Mint Hill community early Wednesday caused minor damage but no injuries. However the 14-year-old boy who earlier shot the intruder said the family feels the shots were fired in retaliation.

The boy was at home with his grandmother on Dec. 16 when an intruder tried to break into the house. In a 911 call, the grandmother describes her grandson telling the intruder to leave and shooting him when he did not.

The dead man was identified as 18-year-old Isai Delcid.
