13-Year-Old Kills Armed Home Invader

posted on November 13, 2015

A teenage boy was at home alone in Ladson, S.C., when he saw a suspicious vehicle pull up behind his house. When he then saw a man trying to break into the back door, he retrieved his mother’s gun and shot at the suspect, who returned fire. The man and an accomplice then fled in their vehicle. 

The Post and Courier reports that one of the suspects was dropped off at the hospital and later succumbed to his wounds, while his accomplice was arrested. Both suspects were found to have extensive criminal histories. The boy who defended himself with the gun was unharmed. 

His mother said, “I tell my kids that if anything ever happens to call 911, but I also tell them to protect themselves if they have to.”
