Five Chicago teenagers are being charged with murder after a 14-year-old who was with them was shot and killed by a homeowner during an alleged burglary attempt, according to authorities.

Five Chicago teenagers are being charged with murder after a 14-year-old who was with them was shot and killed by a homeowner during an alleged burglary attempt.

Armed with a revolver, the homeowner told authorities he was standing on his porch, yelling at them to leave, when two of the individuals"quickly approached him," Covelli said. The man said he saw that one of the teens"holding something in his hand," so he discharged his firearm at least three times out of fear for his and his wife's safety.

The four people who were still in the SUV fled the scene"at high rate of speed," reaching 120 mph on Interstate 94 as they were chased all the way back to Chicago by law enforcement officers from the Lake County Sheriff's Office, the Gurnee Police Department and Illinois State Police.

The only suspect who was identified is the sole 18-year-old, Diamond Davis, who is being detained at the Lake County jail. The three 17-year-olds and the 16-year-old are being held at the Hulse Juvenile Detention Facility in Vernon Township.

The homeowner was legally allowed to possess the gun he used in the shooting, Covelli said. The 14-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

14 Reasons Why Periods Were Created By The Devil HimselfHaving your period is like having an exorcism. Every month or so, the uterus lining gets thicker to prepare for a fertilized egg if the woman becomes pregnant. If the egg doesn't get fertilized, that lining is released from the body as blood through the vagina. This monthly process is called menstruation. Its just biology I'm no different when I'm on my period😕
