Teenage Boy Scares Off Home Invaders With Rifle

posted on August 24, 2015

In North Las Vegas, Nev., two young men allegedly broke into Kieawa Mason’s home while he was away—but his three sons were there. 14-year-old Andrew Mason ushered his younger twin brothers into an upstairs closet once he realized that the suspects were going to enter the home; he also called 911 on a cell phone and armed himself with a rifle.

The brothers hid in the closet while the thieves loaded up a car with stolen items, but eventually one of them opened the door and found the boys. He ran at the sight of the rifle, and the suspects fled the scene immediately. Both of them were caught on surveillance video, and the boys’ father posted images of them on social media. He praised his son’s brave actions and expressed confidence that the suspects would be quickly apprehended.
