    Prince George's County Police have so far been unable to determine why 17-year-old Amber D. Stanley was killed in her bedroom by an unknown intruder Wednesday evening.

    "We've got nothing, absolutely noting," Captain Joseph R. Hoffman told The Washington Post Friday. "We're at zero."

    Police say that Stanley was killed by a gunman who barged into her family's home in the 100 block of Chartsey Street in Kettering. The man allegedly walked directly to Amber's bedroom and opened fire with a handgun. Police say that Amber's 37-year-old biological sister was in the house at the time of the shooting with her daughter, as was a 17-year-old foster sister. Investigators say that the three escaped through a window and sought the help of a neighbor.

    Investigators told the Post that the person who shot Amber may have been intending to go to a different room, or even a different house.
