16 year old Pennsylvania girl shot after confronting robbers

A 16 year old Pennsylvania girl was shot by another teen after apparently confronting robbers in her apartment complex:
A teenager has been charged with the shooting death of a 16-year-old girl in Rankin Friday evening.
Delasia Dutrieuille was shot in the Hawkins Village county housing development and pronounced dead at the scene at 7:50 p.m., according to the Allegheny County medical examiner's office. Allegheny County police said Saturday morning that Londell Jones, 16, of Rankin had been arrested and charged with homicide.
Investigators believe Delasia had been robbed by two men shortly before the shooting, and that she had confronted one of the robbers in the housing complex, according to Lt. Andrew Schurman of the county homicide unit.
Delasia was killed outside of a Hawkins Village playground. Some residents said the gunshots were drowned out by loud music playing at Friday night parties.
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
