Report: 11-year-old boy shoots home intruder

An 11-year-old Alabama boy says he opened fire with a gun and wounded a man suspected of breaking into his home. Chris Gaither tells WVTM-TV he was home alone in Talladega on Wednesday when he heard a noise and realized someone else was inside. The boy says he grabbed a 9mm handgun and an armed male intruder threatened to kill him. Gaither says he followed the man outside and started shooting as the intruder fled with a clothes hamper. Gaither says he wounded the man in the leg with his 12th and final shot, and the man started “crying like a baby.” Police haven’t released any details on the case but say they are investigating. WVTM reports the man was treated for his wound at a hospital.
