Although ailing, Mark Falletti successfully stopped two
armed home-invaders early one morning in his Boston, Massachusetts,
home. The men kicked in the front door of the apartment and ran up
the stairs towards the Fallettis' bedroom. While his wife called
911, Falletti confronted the intruders with a pistol. When he
startled them and knocked one intruder's pistol out of his hand,
they fled. When one tried to reenter the home to return for the
dropped gun, Falletti shot him in the leg. The two men again fled.
A man with a gunshot wound to the leg was later questioned at a
local hospital. Falletti suffers from cancer and later said he
acted to protect his seven-month-old son who had been asleep in his
upstairs bedroom. "I did it because of the kid," said Falletti.
