Practice pays off.

PHOENIX (AP) - A 14-year-old boy shot and nearly killed an intruder who broke into his Phoenix home and pulled a gun on him while he was watching his three younger siblings, police said Saturday.

The teen and his siblings, ages 8, 10 and 12, were at home alone when a woman rang the doorbell Friday afternoon, Phoenix police Officer James Holmes said.

The teen didn't open the door because he didn't recognize the woman.

Soon after, the teen heard a loud bang on the door, rushed his siblings upstairs and got a handgun from his parent's bedroom.

When he got to the top of the stairs, he saw a man break through the front door and point a gun at him.

The boy shot the 37-year-old man, who was taken to a hospital in extremely critical condition and underwent surgery. The man was upgraded to critical condition and is expected to survive and be booked into jail within the week on counts of aggravated assault and burglary, Holmes said.

Much better outcome than the Merced California pitchforkings...

My condolences to this young man for what he will have to live with, but he and his siblings will be alive. We always hear "If it saves 1 life"...well, looks like having a gun and a trained individual no matter his age saved some lives here. See the below links to see how it COULD have gone...

This came out of incidents in 2003? Why didn't we hear about this sooner? I got it, the press.

Liberals are bad. Conservatives are good.

Huh?

The OP is about a 2012 event, I referenced a 2000 event that ended terribly

I don't have an issue with the kid, but really the parents should not have allowed the kid access to a handgun in the first place. i guarantee you for this one "happy ending", there are fpour or five cases of patricide or a kid that gerts shot by another kid who took his parent's gun.

I doubt you'll be able to find any evidence to support your assertion.

One criminal being shot an critically wounded is better than 4 minors possibly raped and killed.
