The Star-News, Pasadena, CA, 9/20/86

Monday, December 1, 1986

When two armed men broke into his family's estate home in Arcadia, Calif., and one held a gun to his mother's head and the other went after his sister with a knife, 14-year-old Chuck Bluth dialed 911. Then he grabbed a rifle, quickly loaded it and fired once as the knife-wielding intruder lunged at him. The shot killed his 220-lb. assailant. The second man fled. Police said no charges would be filed against the teenager.
