6-Time Felon Killed By 13-Year-Old During Home Invasion

As a felon and his accomplice tried to break in to a home they thought was empty, they were met with some resistance when a 13-year-old packing a pistol took it upon himself to defend his home. This is why firearms are a necessity in a world filled with criminals, imagine if this boy didn't have access to a firearm. Would these thugs have let him be? Would they have beat or killed him? Fortunately we don't have to find that out because he was prepared and willing to defend himself and his home.From Guns.com

Two convicted felons intent on breaking into a Ladson, South Carolina, home Tuesday afternoon were met with surprise when they came face to face with 13-year-old armed with a gun.

According to reports from The Post and Courier, the young boy, who is not being identified, was home alone when he grew suspicious of a car that pulled up outside around 1:30 p.m. Moments later, the two suspects went to the back of the house and attempted to break in, at such time, the boy, fearing for his safety, grabbed his mother’s handgun.

As the suspects tried to make their way into the house, the boy opened fire, but the suspects reacted by returning fire before fleeing from the scene. The boy chased the suspects out of the home and continued to fire as they fled in their vehicle. The boy, who was uninjured, then called his mother, who instructed him to call the police.

Investigators combed the area around the boy’s home and discovered a Colt .45 pistol, which was believed to belong to the suspects.

A short time later, one of the suspects, who was later identified as Lamar Anthwan Brown, 31, was dropped off outside the emergency room of a nearby hospital. Brown, who was shot three times, died at the medical facility. The second suspect, Ira Bennett, 28, later turned himself in to authorities. He was charged with first-degree burglary and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
