A 13-year-old South Carolina boy used his mother’s gun to fend off two home intruders while he was home alone.
According to The Post and Courier, one man was shot and killed by the 13-year-old, while the other was later caught and arrested.
Lamar Anthwan Brown, 31, of Summerville, South Carolina, was pronounced dead at a medical center after suffering gunshot wounds in the burglary. Brown was dropped off at the hospital by the other suspect, Ira Bennett, 28, of North Charleston, after the pair fled the Ladson home where the shooting took place.
Bennett was later arrested and charged with first-degree burglary and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
