11-Year-Old Alabama Boy Shoots Home Intruder

posted on May 2, 2016

An Alabama 11-year-old used a family firearm to put a stop to a home invasion and robbery while he was home alone on Wednesday morning. 

According to local media reports, Chris Gaither told police that a man broke into his home and walked upstairs. He repeatedly threatened and berated the youngster, even telling him he was going to kill him.

The robber made it to the front door with stolen goods in hand, but the boy opened fire with a 9 mm handgun, hitting the intruder once in the leg. “I shot through the hamper he was carrying,” Gaither told media outlet WVTM. “It was a full metal jacket bullet. It went straight through the back of his leg. He started crying like a little baby.”
