Facing Gunfire, Idaho Teen Stops Home Intruder

posted on November 3, 2016

When an intruder in a Rigby, Idaho, home began shooting at the homeowner and his 17-year-old son, the youngster proved he could handle the situation. 

According to local media reports, the homeowner was outside investigating a noise when he saw a man climbing out of one of the home’s bedroom windows. The man saw him and retreated back into the house.

The homeowner and son headed toward the bedroom to investigate, with the son grabbing his shotgun on the way. “As soon as he saw us step into the room, that’s when he started shooting at us,” the homeowner told police. “And the bullets were flying past us. I can’t believe we didn’t get hit.”

Facing the gunfire, the son stepped into the room. He shot the intruder once, knocking him to the ground and causing him to drop his handgun. The suspect was arrested and remained hospitalized in fair condition at the time of this writing.
