Sometimes you have to do what you have to do.
An 11-year-old boy took actions and used a handgun to defend himself and his sister from two intruders who tried to break into their house while they were home alone.
You never want to think of a child having to perform such a duty like this, but this young man felt he had to defend his home and is a little 4-year-old sister. Forgive me if I am wrong but during the video report below it seems they are blaming the boy for killing the intruder. Do you think that’s what it sounds like?
According to a local Fox affiliate:
Two suspects tried to break into the home twice before on Thursday. One of the suspects got into the unlocked front door of the home at around 2:30 pm while the 11-year-old and a 4-year-old girl were home alone. That is when the 11-year-old shot and killed the suspect. Police found the body with a gunshot to the head in the front foyer of the home.
Investigators say the second suspect ran off when shots were fired. St. Louis County Police has taken the suspect into custody. They have not yet released the suspect’s name.
Police are trying to determine why the children were left at home alone. Neither of the children was harmed in the incident.
