Heroic 12-Year-Old Protects His 73-Year-Old Grandmother From Intruder After She Was Shot


Two masked robbers broke into a Goldsboro, North Carolina apartment, demanding money, and ended up shooting a 73-year-old woman, according to The Daily Wire.

After the woman was shot, her 12-year-old grandson opened fire on the intruders causing them to flee.

One of the intruders was pronounced deceased at a local hospital.

“Goldsboro police responded to a report of a shooting on South William Street at about 12:43 a.m.”

“Police said two masked people forced their way into the apartment, demanded money and shot one of the residents, Linda Ellis, 73, whom a family member identified as the boy’s grandmother.”

Police officials stated, “A 12-year-old juvenile occupant of the residence shot at the suspects with a firearm in self-defense, causing them to flee the area.”

“Preliminary evidence suggests Khalil Herring was one of the two masked intruders and was shot during the robbery.”

“The intruders had demanded money from 73-year-old Linda Ellis and subsequently shot her, police said in a statement posted on the Goldsboro Police Department’s Facebook page.”

The second intruder has not been arrested yet.

“They came in the house, I open the door, I open it, and they came in there… One guy had a gun. They just put me down on the ground. … The [73-year-old woman] was in the kitchen, I don’t know why they shot her,” said Randolph Bunn, Linda Ellis’ son, the great-uncle of the 12-year-old. “[The intruder] just shot his grandma… He would have shot him too; he would’ve shot me too; he would’ve killed us all.”

Chiquita Coley Ellis said, “My phone was constantly ringing, and ringing and ringing. I just couldn’t believe she been shot because she’s a good person.” She added, “Why would somebody come into her house and do this? It’s got to stop. I don’t know what they’re thinking around here in Goldsboro, but it’s got to stop.”

No charges are expected to be filed against the boy.

“I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets,” Biden wrote to Congress.

The incident comes amid renewed debate over gun control sparked by the new administration’s agenda. The Daily Wire reported on Sunday:

Democrat President Joe Biden called on Congress to clamp down on Americans’ constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights on Sunday, demanding gun bans and new laws that will allow people to sue gun manufacturers.

In the statement, Biden’s call for “banning assault weapons” likely amounts to calling for a ban on semi-automatic firearms, and there was no language included in the statement about allowing gun owners who currently own those weapons to be able to keep those weapons. If gun owners are not allowed to keep those specific semi-automatic firearms under a Biden ban, that would effectively amount to a mandatory gun confiscation-type program.
