A 17-year-old was shot and killed while attempting to break into a residence in the 3700 block of Kirkman Street early Thursday morning, authorities with the Lake Charles Police Department said.

Westlake man Jyren Jacob Broussard, 17, of Westlake, and Phillip M. Watson, 17, and Markeithan Terrell Stiner, 20, both of Lake Charles, attempted to gain entry into the residence by force, Deputy Chief Mark Kraus said. Lake Charles police received the call at 4:34 a.m.
