Teen Shoots Violent Intruder

On Tuesday, 18-year-old Malachi Heisler woke up to his mother's screams when he found a masked man pointing a gun at her. As soon as he saw the intruder, wearing all-black tactical gear and a ski mask, he grabbed his rifle and shot him in the head. The intruder forced himself into the family's home. Afterwards, it was discovered that the intruder was Malachi's estranged father, John Heisler. The teen told ABC Action News, "I had about five to six seconds to make a decision. By the time I did recognize him, the decision was made."

The incident started when Andrews and her new boyfriend, 47-year-old Alton Pyles, went outside to check on a loud crashing noise--that's when they were met by John Heisler. Andrews and Pyles ran back inside once John Heisler pointed a gun at them. Heisler still followed them and forced his way inside. Heisler grabbed Andrews' upper body and tried to force her to the ground when Pyles called for help. After Malachi Heisler fired his weapon, John Heisler was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was injured. Pinellas County sheriff Bob Gualtieri said that Malachi did the right thing. Previously, Andrews had obtained a temporary restraining order against John Heisler in April, which was then extended until May 2016.
