(NEWSER) – Tragedy in Colorado: A man shot and killed his stepdaughter before dawn today, probably mistaking her for a burglar as she sneaked back into the house, the Colorado Springs Gazette reports. "The initial call came in as a burglary-in-progress," a police spokesman said. Officers found the unidentified 14-year-old with a chest wound and had her taken to the hospital, where she died. Police scanner traffic suggests that the girl had entered through the window, KOAA reports.
