Teen Looking For Trouble … Finds It

posted on April 20, 2015

It’s been said that nothing good happens after midnight, and that was certainly the case in Gadsden, Ala., earlier this week. A woman was home alone when three armed men broke into her home around 3 a.m. One held her at gunpoint, beat her and raped her, while the other two ransacked the house. Those two eventually left.

The 17-year-old rapist would have been wise to follow their lead—but he got greedy. Instead of leaving, he demanded the victim’s money, which she said was at a neighbor’s house. So he dragged her to the neighbor’s house, where that homeowner picked up the phone to call 911. The rapist ordered him to hang up and fired two shots in the air before turning his gun on the homeowner. At that point, the homeowner—an armed citizen—raised his own firearm, firing and killing the teen.
