R Reports - A shocking accident in an upscale Washington DC suburb.

A 16 year old boy snuck out of his home to go to a party with friends.

Later, after drinking alcohol, he tried to sneak back in to his house but mistakenly entered another home.

Police say the homeowner there mistook the boy for an intruder, and shot him dead.

The boy's mother says she doesn't blame the neighbour.


"I don't even blame the gentleman. I haven't even thought about it, so if he's watching, I just want you to know that I forgive you sir. I understand that this was an accident and like I said, I truly believe that everything happens for a reason and my son, he's an angel, he was an angel and I did the best that I could."

Friends say the boy was well liked and a great student.
