     STERLING, Va. (AP) - The parents of a teenager who was fatally shot after he mistakenly entered a neighbor's home after a night of drinking say they forgive the shooter. 
     Shawn and Jennea Gordley remembered their 16-year-old son Caleb on Tuesday as a lover of music and sports. 
     Police say Caleb was fatally shot early Sunday after entering a neighbor's home through a back window. 
     Shawn Gordley said his son snuck out of the house Saturday night and went drinking with friends. They walked home from the party and Caleb went in through a back window, mistaking the neighbor's house for his own. Caleb had lived in his home for less than a year and the houses look similar. 
     On Tuesday both parents said they do not blame the shooter for what happened.
