Argus Leader, Sioux Falls, S.D., 11/24/99

Sunday, October 1, 2000

A 13-year-old Sioux Falls, S.D., boy was sick at home one morning when an intruder apparently intent on committing a robbery invaded the residence through an unlocked sliding door. The masked man, who likely did not consider the boy a serious challenge, now stood before him brandishing a hammer. The intruder himself likely fell sick, however, when the boy grabbed a shotgun and called 911. In his apparent frustration, the home invader struck blows into several walls with the hammer before fleeing the residence.
