Teen dies during home invasion attack, police shoot intruder A 17-year-old boy is dead after being attacked during a home invasion in Winnipeg's West End, and the intruder is in hospital after being shot by police. Police said the teen, Jaime Adao, was home alone with his grandmother on Sunday night when someone forced their way into the house on McGee Street, between Wellington and Notre Dame avenues, in the city's West End. Police were called around 9 p.m. about a break-in in progress and when officers arrived, they found the teen being attacked by a man with a weapon. The officers shot at the attacker, a 29-year-old man police say is well known to them.

MELBOURNE (Reuters) - An Australian man had a lucky escape while confronting a man armed with a bow outside his home, as a loosed arrow pierced the mobile telephone he was holding to take a photograph of the incident, Australian police said on Thursday.

The 43-year old man had returned on Wednesday to find the man, who was known to him, waiting outside his home in Nimbin, a small east coast town around 150 kilometers (93 miles) south of Brisbane.

"The resident held up his mobile phone to take a photo of the armed man who then engaged the bow and was ready to fire," a police statement said.

"It’s alleged the man fired the arrow at the resident which pierced through the man’s mobile phone causing the phone to hit him in the chin. It left a small laceration that didn’t require medical treatment."

A 39-year old man was arrested at the scene and charged, police said.
