There very well maybe facts that justify force like that i.e. he tried to fight the owner, started throwing things, grabbed something to throw. Who knows besides the owner at this point what happened inside the house. As it stands now I say deadly force was not needed.
The mere fact that he forcefully entered someone else's home justifies deadly force.

How do you know the homeowner was able bodied enough to fight the kid? At 16, I was 6' tall, 230lbs, lean, aggressive, and stronger than I am now. No way getting into a physical altercation is safe or advisable.
