Once again a firearm saves innocent lives. A fourteen year old was home alone with his sister in an isolated rural North Carolina home.
Four hardcore thugs smashed their way into the home. They were greeted with a twelve gauge shotgun. He fired once and the four thugs fled. One of them dropped dead in his front yard. The boys’ action probably saved his own life and the life of his 17 year old sister.
From UK Daily Mail…
Michael Anthony Henderson Jr, 19, was shot dead.
He staggered away from the house and collapsed where he was found by police.
His brother Seneca, 20, and one other man Andrew Terry, 23, have already been charged in the case.
Police are still searching for a third man named as 21-year-old Jatwaun Davis.
Investigators released a 911 call with the teen calmly describing how he shot the intruder.
In the call, the teen, says: ‘I just shot the man. He came around the corner. I shot him. He broke the whole glass out (of the back door).’
He continues: ‘I don’t know how many it was (who broke in). Just one came around the corner. I got one more in the chamber. I’m going to shoot again,’ the boy said.
‘Do not, while I’m on the phone, do not fire that firearm, OK?’ the dispatcher says
‘What if another one comes in the house, ma’am?’ he asked.
‘Let me know, OK, if you see anybody. I will let you know (when a deputy gets to the house),’ the dispatcher responded.
As the boy and his sister waited for deputies to arrive, he told the dispatcher that he was ‘perfectly fine’, but his sister was ‘really shaken up’.
The boy even asks about the condition of the intruder.
‘He’s still outside. He’s unconscious. I’m not sure if he’s still living or not,’ the dispatcher said.
‘They only found one outside. Are you not sure how many it was?’
‘I’m not sure how many it was, but when I shot, I didn’t hear anybody running,’ he said.
The teen’s sister is earlier heard on a call to an emergency dispatcher saying someone was banging on the door trying to get in.
She tells the operator she is hiding in a closet but that her brother has a gun.
