Teen shot after allegedly stealing items from man’s home

An Albany homeowner shot a 17-year-old boy early Saturday after the boy and another teenager apparently stole items from the man's house, police said.

The 17-year-old and two other people were accused of entering the house in the 3100 block of 27th Avenue SE and stealing several items around 1:30 a.m. before being confronted outside by the home's owner and two other occupants, according to a statement issued by Albany police Sgt. Brad Liles.

An altercation ensued, and the 22-year-old homeowner, whose identity was not released, fired two shots from a handgun. One bullet struck the 17-year-old.

The 17-year-old, whose name was not released, was treated and released from Samaritan Albany General Hospital. The boy and Paul Molina, 18, were booked into Linn County jail on several charges, including first-degree burglary and first-degree robbery.

A 16-year-old male received a curfew citation.
