Boy, 14, kills intruder after gang of FOUR men try to break into house
UK Daily Mail ^ | 7:28 PM GMT on 5th January 2012 | Paul Thompson

Posted on 01/05/2012 12:24:24 PM PST by DCBryan1

Yet another teen has used deadly force to protect his home from intruders.

Police in North Carolina revealed a 14-year-old boy shot dead an intruder attempting to break into his home while he and his sister were alone.

The teen opened fire with a shotgun while his 17-year-old sister hid in a closet as a gang of men attempted to smash their way into their home.

The incident took place two days before 18-year-old Sarah McKinley shot and killed an intruder breaking into her home in Oklahoma

While on the phone with 911, the young mother shot and killed one of the intruders with a 12-gauge shotgun after he forced his way inside her home.

Home invasions are increasing in frequency.

A very scary crime. If they actually get inside, before one can protect themselves, it can get really brutal for the homeowner/occupants.

Scene: A 14-year-old Henderson boy calmly described in a 911 call how he shot an intruder in a home invasion last week.

Looks like the home boys pulled over in rural NC and found out about the 2nd Amendment the hard way. The only downside of this story is that the boy didn't have a Benelli M1 and took out all four thugs.

BTW Grunthor...hows that new baby?! Keep 'em safe!

The big bonus comes when she's 50 and he's 47, and she's gritching at him about something... and he can say "Remember when I was a tender child of 14, and you were nearly an adult, and you hid in a closet while I fought off 4 bad guys?".

Dude, that's worth gold.

The three unkilled can be charged with murder, and I hope they are.

The original Seneca was a man. It is not a woman’s name.

I've been watching that pattern for some time...the UK Mail is doing a much better job reporting US News than any of 'our' news outlets.

Great job by the boy!

Not such a great job by the 911 dispatcher, who IMO should be fired.

He (the 14 year old hero) continues: ‘I don’t know how many it was (who broke in). Just one came around the corner. I got one more in the chamber. I’m going to shoot again,’ the boy said.

‘Do not, while I’m on the phone, do not fire that firearm, OK?’ the dispatcher says

‘What if another one comes in the house, ma’am?’ he asked.

‘Let me know, OK, if you see anybody. I will let you know (when a deputy gets to the house),’ the dispatcher responded.

Investigators released a 911 call with the teen calmly describing how he shot the intruder.

In the call, the teen, says: 'I just shot the man. He came around the corner. I shot him. He broke the whole glass out (of the back door).'

He continues: 'I don't know how many it was (who broke in). Just one came around the corner. I got one more in the chamber. I'm going to shoot again,' the boy said. '

Do not, while I’m on the phone, do not fire that firearm, OK?' the dispatcher says '

What if another one comes in the house, ma'am?' he asked. '

Let me know, OK, if you see anybody. I will let you know (when a deputy gets to the house),' the dispatcher responded.

What is this with the dispatcher telling the kid not fire the gun again if another person comes at him? The dispatcher needs to be written up!

Zachary is doing just fine. 9 days old and cute as all get out.

The house in the pic looks somewhat like our property, and we are quite capable of defending ourselves here as well. We bought in the middle of BFE exactly to stay away from that kind of element in society. Of course if they come looking for trouble?

We can handle it. One of my neighbors has a sign at the end of his driveway that reads “If you can read this sign, you are in range.”

I have a sign (hand painted) that reads “Think there’s an afterlife? Take another step uninvited and find out for sure.”

We had two new neighbors move in within the past six months, and one of those guys came over for a visit asking me if we have guns.....he hasn’t come back, lol.

Actually the dispatcher is right to warn the boy to be careful of whom hes shooting.

Supposing the deputy comes running around the corner and the kid is primed to shoot the first thing he sees?

The dispatcher wants the kid to warn him first because the dispatcher knows when the deputy has arrived via radio contact.

The US (USA Today, WaPo, LAT, NYT, SF Chron, McClatchey) newspapers routinely do not publish things like this. I asked a SF Chron newswriter (friend of a friend) who literally was more concerned with the rights of Gitmo terrorists than the safety of Americans.

The disease of Liberalism is alive and well in US newsrooms and broadcast stations.

Here is some background on just ONE of the perps:

Terry was also wanted for a previous breaking-and-entering that occurred at a Parham Road residence on Nov. 14. That victim lost her purse, credit cards and $110 in cash. A separate arrest warrant regarding that incident charges Terry with fraudulent use of the victim’s State Employee’s Credit Union card.

Court records indicate Terry had been charged with more than a dozen previous break-in and theft felonies in recent years.

North Carolina Department of Corrections records note Terry under an alias as Andrew Montralus “Bird” Terry. He was recently released from serving concurrent 9-11 month sentences for break-in and theft convictions. His actual time of incarceration was less than eight months when released on Feb. 9, 2010.

Terry also served a 9-11 month sentence for a previous felony break-in case. His actual time in the prison facility added up to three months when he was released on Feb. 4, 2009. He had been given two previous suspended sentences on previous felony theft cases. Read more: The Daily Dispatch - Suspect arrested in home invasion that led to fatal shooting

I wonder how the Uk news sites will spin this as the “crazy americans and their guns” rather than realizing that two lives were potentially saved by the young boy’s timely and accurate actions.

I think the brits are starting to understand the fruits of their disarmed culture. The Daily Mail article on the lady who shot the intruder in OK had a fair amount of “wish we had guns over here” comments.

Home invasions are increasing in frequency.

Seeing a lot more of this during work hours; however, the kids are at home after school so the house isn't empty. Happened to the grandson of a friend - the kid hid in a closet off the bathroom and prayed for his life. If more bad guys get killed by kids defending themselves while "home alone", the bad guys will be thinking twice about home invasions ..... thus the purpose of having a gun and knowing how to use it. Teach your children well.

There's an NFL quarterback named Seneca Wallace born in 1980, so apparently the name has some circulation in that culture. I can't seem to find another Jatwaun, however.

My answer had to do with “center mass”.

I’m thinking the sales of shotguns is going to go up.

From the picture of the home, looks like two points of entry. Two shotguns are better than one. Older sister could have stood guard at the other door, just in case, while younger brother took out the trash that was breaking in.

Seneca Wallace is hardly a QB, he’s a skinny running back that can throw a little. We had him in Seattle for a few years and he underwhelmed decisively.
