PHOENIX — Police say a 14-year-old boy shot an intruder who broke into his Phoenix home and pulled a gun on him as he was watching his three younger siblings.If he had done anything differently, it's hard to say how it may have turned out. But anyone who puts a gun on a boy that age wouldn't have spared them much. Good for this kid.
Police Officer James Holmes said Saturday that the teen and his brothers and sisters were at home alone when a woman rang the doorbell Friday. The teen didn't open the door because he didn't recognize her.
Soon after, the teen heard a bang on the door, rushed his siblings upstairs and got a handgun from his parent's bedroom. When he got to the top of the stairs, he saw a man breaking through the front door and point a gun at him.

Teenage and hero don't often collide in the same sentence. This young man did everything right, and I hope his parents are proud of him.
