— A Henderson teenager shot and killed an intruder Thursday morning, according to the Vance County Sheriff's Office.

When deputies arrived at 586 S. Lynnbank Road, they found a man lying in the yard. Michael Anthony Henderson Jr., 19, had been shot in the chest with a shotgun, deputies said. He was taken to Maria Parham Medical Center where he died.

Deputies did not say which of two people home at the time -- teens ages 14 and 17 -- pulled the trigger, but no charges are expected against them or their parents.

Deputies said Henderson, of 150 Freedom Lane, had an accomplice. They are looking for Andrew Terry, of 113 N. Woods Drive. Terry is also wanted for a break-in Nov. 14 at a different Vance County home. Anyone with information about where Terry might be is asked to call the Vance County Sheriff's Office at 252-738-2200.
