High school freshman Javaris Granger woke to the sound of his
mother's frantic screams and ran to her aid, finding a man slamming
a bicycle against the front window in an attempt to break in.
Granger yelled at the man to leave while his mother called his
father on the phone. She handed him the phone and his father told
him to get the guns they used for target shooting and said, "Do
what you have to do." When the intruder kicked in the door, Granger
fired five shots, and the man fled. A suspect was later apprehended
by police and taken to the hospital with two gunshot wounds. His
extensive arrest record included a charge of attacking a police
officer the day before he allegedly broke into Granger's home. "My
husband tried to get everyone to learn the safety of a gun," said
Granger's mother. "It paid off."
