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.

 

"The police and indeed our community does not ever want to see a situation where a teenager of that age has to take a weapon to protect his family

If the Phoenix boy had been the one shot, and killed, he would have risen from his ashes later on.

Good for the boy. He did the right thing. Too bad his aim was off.

I'm just glad he did the right thing. When someone breaks in your house you take no chances. He acted in the proper way. The intruder had a weapon, you don't ask him how his day is going you shoot him and end the threat.

Huge props to this kid for potentially saving his and his sibling's lives.  And props to his parents who clearly taught the kid well.  We need more of this.
