Skip to comments.Boy, 14, kills intruder after gang of FOUR men try to break into house

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.

Culprits: Michael Henderson, left, was shot dead by the teen and Andrew Terry fled the scene but was later captured.
“The teen opened fire with a shotgun while his 17-year-old sister hid in a closet.....”
No ladies and gentlement, the genders are NOT equal.
God bless and keep the family that was attacked.
Won’t even make the snooze.
Tsk... those rabid Amish gangs... What a disgrace to their people.
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.
Really? Dead and incarcerated voted for the O last time, what’s changed?

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!
Dude, that's worth gold.
I’m thinking the sales of shotguns is going to go up.
The three unkilled can be charged with murder, and I hope they are.
The lesson: To read the REAL US news, American readers must read a BRITISH newspaper.
Sniff. What a happy ending.
Nonsense. They'll still vote. Early and often!
I’m really proud of these “kids”.
A male named Seneca? LMFAO
The original Seneca was a man. It is not a woman’s name.
I'm 25% happy. 3 more bangs, 3 more THUDS on the cold mud would make me 100% happier;) Hey criminals: Play stupid games and you win stupid prizes.
So the police already HAD pictures of the four?!
No surprise here.
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 Im 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.
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 Im 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!
Damn good shooting kid. You have my respect...
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.
Note to teen-agers...learn to use firearms responsibly now. You can play with your blackberries later...
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.
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 victims State Employees 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
LOL. . .the ultimate trump card in any argument with her. . . forever.
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.
“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 Employees Credit Union card.”
He’s a cross-dresser, too?
Perhaps so, but this is the first Seneca name is the last couple thousand years.
And I will still LMFAO at him.
The dispatcher needs to read some SCOTUS rulings.....for instance:
Just as I thought.
Only place comparing Obama to a dictator are the English papers. I am a big EPL fan, I am amazed at how candid the UK press can be. At times brutally accurate and at other times stupid beyond words.
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.
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 14 yr old was just asking me last night what she should do if a similar situation presented itself.
My answer had to do with “center mass”.
That kind of talk....sounds like Eric Holder.
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.
And I think "that culture" is first and foremost...American Indian.
The remaining three will go right on about their business until they’re reunited with the dead one.
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.
Well, they would be if their daddies would teach them. Every young lady should be taught the proper procedures to follow during a home invasion. No child left behind! :)
