TALLADEGA, Ala. --An 11-year-old Alabama boy shot a man who broke into his home on Wednesday.
Chris Gaither says he was home alone when he heard the intruder come inside. Chris grabbed a .9mm handgun and met the man downstairs.
Chris says the burglar threatened him before walking outside with a clothes hamper in hand.
"I shot through the hamper he was carrying. It was a full metal jacket bullet. It went straight through the back of his leg. He started crying like a little baby," Chris said.
Police tell local station WVTM the intruder will survive and will likely face charges.
