Seventeen-year-old Neal Shuster of Orlando, Fla., was at the home of his grandparents, both of whom are physically handicapped, when Reagan Quade busted through the door and ran into the house. “I just heard the door slam shut at 2 a.m. and I knew that wasn’t right,” Shuster said. Firearm in hand, he confronted Quade, who allegedly charged him. “He’s grabbing me, and my grandpa is yelling, ‘Shoot him.’ So I shot him.”
Quade was hospitalized and placed in a medically induced coma. He is expected to survive and will be charged with burglary. Meanwhile, the elder Shusters credit their grandson with saving their lives. “When someone comes in like that, you don't know what to do,” Linda Shuster said.
