15 Yeard old boy shoots burglar with his dad's AR-15

I came across this gem the other day, I'm not quite sure as to how old this story is. But This makes me wish I had taught my kids how to shoot early on. It seems to me that teaching them the safety behind firearms early on helps them to understand the dangers and safety behind guns. But thats just my personal opinion.

This 15 year old boy who just so happened to be the son of a deputy officer shot but didnt kill inturders when he was home alone. The 15 yr old boy was home alone with his 12 year old sister. Around 2:30 in the morning he heard burglars trying to get in the home from the front and back doors. It wasnt until they broke a back window when he knew this was real, not a drill and went for his Dad's AR-15! He then shot one of the intruders at least 3 times, which made them flee the scene. Shortly afterwards the suspects showed up at the local hospital, one of them (The adult) all shot up seeking treatment. One of them was a juvenile and was fine. He was later taken back to the scene, probably so maybe the 15 yr old could identify?!

Apparently these burglers had hit two neighbors prior to this incident.
Lt. Jeffrey Stauber said “We don't try to hide things from our children in law enforcement,” “That young boy was protecting his sister. He was in fear for his life and her life.”

I praise this teenagers actions to be honest for protecting his little sister and himself. So my question is, how do you feel about teaching your children about firearms?


The fact that it was an AR-15 makes the young man all the more badass.

That is intense! I guess those burglars picked the wrong house to mess with that day.

I'm glad the boy and his sister ended up ok
