Woman Shoots And Kills 14-Year-Old Boy During Alleged Apartment Burglary Attempt


FORT WORTH, TEXAS — A 14-year-old boy, an 8th grader from Rosemont Middle School, was fatally shot during an alleged burglary attempt at an apartment complex. The incident occurred near I-20 and McCart Avenue. The female resident, who reported previous break-in attempts, called 911 early Thursday morning to report an attempted burglary. Police responded but left after completing their report. Shortly after, the woman made a second 911 call, claiming the intruder had returned. When police arrived the second time, they found the teenager with a fatal gunshot wound to the chest.

The woman involved in the shooting is cooperating with the police investigation, and no arrests have been made so far. The apartment showed signs of the incident, with two bullet holes visible on the front wall.

Durwyn Lamb, who runs multiple community youth programs in North Texas, was scheduled to mentor the boy at school that day. He expressed his shock and sorrow upon receiving the news of the boy’s death, highlighting the tragic nature of such incidents in the community.
