A 14-year-old was at home with his younger siblings when a pair of home invaders entered the house. The 14-year-old responded by rounding up his siblings and moving to a closet, where he armed himself with his father’s rifle. When one of the criminals discovered the armed teen, he fled along with his accomplice.
Discussing the incident with a local media outlet, the protective brother noted that his father had taught him what to do in just such a scenario, stating, “He taught me what to do. I had a rifle I had a cell phone, called 911. I was just prepared for it.” (KSNV, Las Vegas, Nev. 08/21/15)
