Womack, J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which Keller, P.J., and Price, Johnson, Keasler, Hervey, Cochran, and Alcala, JJ., joined. Meyers, J., filed a dissenting opinion.

(2) Does a teenager lack authority to invite officers inside a residence simply because he is a minor? (3) Does Illinois v. Rodriguez*fn2 require officers to make further inquiry when they are faced with ambiguity regarding the authority of a third party to consent to an entry or search?*fn3
