UPDATE: The second suspect has been caught in this home invasion that didn’t turn out like the robbers had planned. An 11-year old obviously knew where a gun was and shot the intruder who had attempted entry into the home three times before breaking in. The second intruder fled and has now been caught.
An 11-year-old child shot and killed a suspect who tried to break into child’s home, police said.
Authorities said an 11-year-old child and a 4-year-old sibling were home on Hallwood Drive, near Castle Point, when two men attempted to break in. The suspects attempted to get into the home twice, but failed. They made their way inside on the third attempt.
The 11-year-old picked up a gun and fatally shot a 20-year-old suspect. The other suspect fled the scene but has been apprehended by police.
