13-year-old SC boy shoots and kills intruder while home alone [View all]

The intruders had a litany of convictions between the two. Brown had been previously convicted of unlawful carrying of a weapon, disorderly conduct, trespassing, and six felony charges related to drugs. Bennett was convicted of manufacturing and distributing a controlled substance, assault with intent to kill, pointing a firearm at a person, and third-degree burglary according to postcourier.com.

In total Brown was hit by three rounds. He was dropped off at Trident Medical Center by Bennett. Brown died of his injuries, and Bennett was quickly arrested. When asked by investigators from the Charleston County Sheriff's Office how his friend and vehicle came to have several fresh bullet holes, Bennett claimed they had been shot at while on the highway.

The boy's name and the names of his family members are not being released to the public due to the boy's age. The 13-year-old was home alone on Nov. 10 at around 1:30 p.m. when he noticed a vehicle pull into the home's backyard. The boy became suspicious and grabbed his mother's handgun. When the two men, now identified as Lamar Anthwa Brown, 31, and Ira Bennett, 28, began attempting to break in, the boy opened fire on them by shooting through the back door. The intruders returned fire, but the boy was not struck. As Brown and Bennett fled in a gray Chevy Sonic, the boy continued to fire at them.

I realize that DGUs occur at least a thousand times per day, but in most cases they do not result in a shooting. I felt this was noteworthy as the victim was 13 and being attacked by criminals with a history of brutality. In all likelihood, gun ownership saved this young man's life. Sometimes the bad guys pick the wrong house.
