[UPDATE] Davenport, Florida (AP) --

A 15-year-old boy is dead two days after
authorities say he and three other teens attempted to burglarize a
central Florida home.

The Polk County Sheriff's Office says Otilio Rubio, of
Davenport, was shot by the homeowner on September 21 (Tuesday evening). Rubio's family decided to remove him from life support on September 23.

Three other juveniles have been charged with burglary of an
occupied dwelling and felony murder. Under Florida law, individuals
involved in a felony that results in death can be charged with
murder, even if they are not directly responsible for the killing.

The homeowner, Jose Luis Oyola-Aponte, has been charged with
possession of narcotics.
