SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Police say that two teens were shot dead after being confronted by an occupant of the home they allegedly tried to burglarize.

“It’s happened before, so she’s pretty shaken up about the incident that’s been going on,” said a neighbor who didn’t want to be identified.

According to the Sacramento Police Department, officers were called to the 1000 block of Arcade Boulevard around 12:18 a.m. Sunday for a robbery in progress. Once at the scene, however, officers found that two young men had been shot dead.

“Last night I heard a bang, bang, bang. And then within a minute, there were cops everywhere,” said the neighbor.
