According to police, a 9-year-old boy fought back against a trio of robbers who broke into his family’s home by shooting at the suspects with their own gun.
The would-be robbers entered the home in Canarsie, Brooklyn shortly before 6p.m. on Monday, posing as deliverymen. Once inside they ordered two teens to get on the floor. Somehow the boy in question managed to elude the intruders and booked it upstairs.
One of the robbers pursued him, but the quick-witted 9-year-old slammed a door on the suspect’s arm, causing him to drop his gun. The boy promptly scooped it up and began firing.
The courageous whippersnapper succeeded in spooking the bandits who made a hurried departure. Amazingly, no one was injured.
The police are currently canvassing the neighborhood looking for clues to the whereabouts of the home invaders.
