A brave 12-year-old Louisiana boy came to the rescue of his mother when an armed intruder entered their home and threatened her life.  Armed with a hunting rifle, the young man fatally shot the 32-year-old armed intruder, Brad LeBlanc, who was later declared dead at a local hospital.

NYP reports – The youngster, who will not be charged, feared for his mother’s life when he pumped a bullet into Brad LeBlanc

 The Advocate: The home invasion took place at 7:21 a.m. Wednesday in the 5800 block of Winchester Lane, east of Clinton.

Witnesses told authorities that 32-year-old Brad LeBlanc, of Vidalia, was armed with a pistol when he encountered a woman outside her home early Wednesday, Travis said.

LeBlanc forced the woman inside her house where a struggle broke out between them. The woman’s 12-year-old son, who has not been named by authorities, shot LeBlanc with a hunting rifle in fear for his mother’s life, Travis said.


LeBlanc, armed with a pistol, first approached the mother outside their home and then forced her inside the residence where a struggle ensued, the report said.

Kudos to this brave young man and to our Second Amendment—the great equalizer.
