The Park View High School student who was fatally shot early Sunday morning has been identified as 16-year-old Caleb A. Gordley, authorities said.

Caleb was shot at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday at a home in the 45900 block of Pullman Court. The homeowner told Loudoun County sheriff's deputies that he went to investigate why an alarm went off in the house and discovered Caleb, whom he did not know, in a stairwell. The homeowner then shot Caleb, who died at the scene, sheriff's office officials said.

Caleb lived on the street where the shooting took place and reportedly drank alcohol with friends prior to the incident. Detectives believe that the teen entered the home through a rear window, and authorities are still investigating why he entered the home.
