WTHR– A young boy shot an intruder in his Talladega, Alabama home and now he’s speaking out.
11-year-old Chris Gaither said the intruder cried like a baby.
“I told him I was going to kill him if he didn’t get out of my house,” Gaither said.
He was was home alone Wednesday morning when he heard a noise.
Someone had broken into his house.
Scared, Gaither grabbed a 9mm hand gun.
“When he was coming down the stairs, that’s when he told me he was going to kill me, f-you and all that,” he said.
The intruder made it out the front door with a hamper in hand, which is when Gaither started firing off bullets.
As the intruder was about to jump a fence, the 11-year-old’s 12th and final shot hit the bad guy in the leg.
“I shot through the hamper he was carrying,” Gaither said. “it was a full metal jacket bullet. It went straight through the back of his leg. He started crying like a little baby.”
The stones on this kid. Props to him on protecting himself and his home. Might need to spend a little more time in the range though.
