Men Break Into The Wrong House - Immediately Regret It

The 13-year-old boy in Ladson, South Carolina was home alone one afternoon when burglars tried to break into his home. The teen grabbed his mother’s gun and shot at the man trying to invade his home, according to FOX 57.

He then fired more shots at the car as it drove away. Police said that a Chevrolet Sonic arrived at Trident Medical Center with several bullet holes and dropped off 31-year-old Lamar Brown of Summerville who had been shot three times.

Police say Brown died later that day and suspect Ira J. Bennett was the one who drove him to the hospital.

Bennett claims that he doesn’t understand the charges and "that car wasn't at that scene." A Colt .45 pistol was found inside the home which didn’t belong to the family. The family says they no longer feel safe in their home.

"I was shocked period that there was a shooting in the neighborhood," neighbor Lyndon Johnson. "Let alone a 13-year-old kid. It's crazy. It doesn't make much sense."

Bennett has been charged with burglary in the first degree and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. His bond was denied by a judge.
