An 84-year-old man in the US state of Missouri has turned himself in to police after shooting a teenager who mistakenly rang his doorbell.
Andrew Lester was bailed after being charged with first-degree assault and armed criminal action, both felonies.
The white homeowner allegedly shot Ralph Yarl, , who is black, once in the head and once in the arm last Thursday night in Kansas City.
The boy survived, and doctors say they have no idea how.A prosecutor said there was a “racial component” to the shooting. Mr Lester has not been charged with a hate crime, and charging documents do not describe any alleged racial bias.
