Armed Dad Keeps Family From Harm

posted on May 30, 2015

Kenneth Sykes of Louisville, Tenn., was taking an afternoon nap when he awoke to the sounds of his kids screaming in terror.

“Then my son and daughter run in, they say some guy is trying to come in, he is running on the side of the house now,” Sykes said. So he grabbed his gun and headed outside, where he was met by 31-year-old Corey Gill.

Sykes pointed his gun at Gill, ordered him not to move and held him at gunpoint until police arrived. Gill was later charged with burglary and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Sykes was just grateful no one was hurt. “If I would have been in the living room, up and moving around, it would have been a different phone call. We wouldn’t have been calling 911, we would’ve been calling EMS or the coroner.”
