LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Lakeland Police say a 15-year-old was shot and killed by a security guard at a Lakeland apartment complex after the teen fired what turned out to be two pellet shots into the guard’s face.

The Tampa Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/22ONlPR) Stephen Brenor was shot early Saturday and died later in the day.

Shawn Plain, a 19-year-old security guard, told police that a young man entered the room with a handgun pointed at him and felt two stinging sensations on his face. Plain said he saw several other people looking into the laundry room, with several holding handguns.

Plain drew his weapon and chased the people into the parking lot and that’s when police said he shot Brenor.

An investigation continues.
