13-Year-Old Find Men Breaking Into Home, Handles Situation Himself

A home invasion in Ladson, SC went awry for two suspects when the teen that was home alone at the time opened fire on them. According to Fox Carolina, one suspect is dead and the other finds himself behind bars.

Lamar Brown, 31, and Ira J. Bennett, 28, would arrive at the teen’s residence and pull up behind the house. Brown would attempt to get inside the home, startling the teenager and causing him to rush and find his mother’s gun as a means of protecting himself. Things got out of hand quickly, as officials from the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office explain.

"He saw a subject out back trying to get inside so he fired his mother's gun through the door and the subject reportedly fired back," explained officials with the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office.

Brown would think better of things and head back to the vehicle to take off. The car would arrive at Trident Hospital with several bullet holes, and Brown would later succumb to his injuries suffered as a result of the gunfight. Bennett has been placed under arrest, and the investigation is ongoing.

The teen and his family spent the night elsewhere, citing safety concerns.
