A teenager who was shot and killed in Sterling, Virginia over the weekend may have accidentally entered the wrong home after a night of drinking.
Law enforcement officials told The Washington Post that the drunk teen had been dropped off by friends at a house just two doors down from where he lived. Both houses were two story, red brick homes and on the same side of the street.
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office refused to release the names of anyone involved, and only described the shooting as an unknown intruder being killed by a homeowner.
According to the Post, law enforcement sources believed that the teen may have entered the home through a rear window and was not armed.
Real estate records indicated that the shooting occurred in the home of Donald West Wilder II. Neighbor Joanna Roman described him as “a great neighbor, a helper, someone who spends spare time volunteering to help others.”
On Monday, the sheriff’s office confirmed to WUSA that the male teen had been a student at Park View High School student. A school official told WRC that grief counselors would be available to students on Monday.
“This is freaking us out when we see a lot of cop cars and media are here,” the school official said.
A 22-year-old Columbian immigrant was shot and killed earlier this year when he arrived to pick up a friend at the wrong home because of faulty GPS directions.

"And now he has gone beyond that," O'Donnell noted. "Now the president is sayin, 'I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot someone and I cannot be prosecuted for that crime. Or any crime.'"

WATCH: GOP congressman hides in an elevator as veterans try to confront him about his support for Trump
On Thursday, Common Defense, an activist group of combat veterans, followed Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) through a hallway and demanded to know why he isn't doing something about President Donald Trump's lawless conduct.
Crenshaw — himself a former Navy SEAL — tried to shoo them away, and eventually ducked into an elevator to get away from them.
"How can you let a criminal like Donald Trump run roughshod over our democracy and shred everything that you and I fought for?" demanded one of the protesters on a video uploaded by the group. "Like c'mon man. Like how can you just sit there idly by and not do your duty? We need your leadership right now. You cannot be complicit in this man's crimes. It is immoral. It's laid out clearly in the Mueller report."
