A 14-year-old North Carolina boy shot and killed a 18-year-old man who was trying to break into his grandmother’s home Tuesday while he was there alone with the elderly woman.

Investigators said the incident occurred shortly before 5:15 p.m. near Charlotte. They said the 14-year-old and his grandmother were in the home when two men tried breaking in, reported the Charlotte Observer.

George Wyant, the homeowner and the teen’s grandfather, told the newspaper that the intruders were on the deck in the back of the house and trying to get through a sliding-glass door. He said his grandson warned the men to leave.

“He told them, ‘Stop, I’ve got a gun,’” Wyant said. But the men continued trying to get into the house. So the boy fired and hit his target – 18-year-old Isai Robert Delcid.

Can you imagine being so terrified? You are in your home and you KNOW someone is breaking in to hurt you and all you can do is wait for them to get in and THEN stop them. OH wait that is in Maryland.
