14 Year Old in NC Kills Intruder

Henderson, N.C. — A 14-year-old Henderson boy calmly described in a 911 call how he shot an intruder in a home invasion last week.

 

"I just shot the man. He came around the corner. I shot him. He broke the whole glass out (of the back door)," the teen told the 911 dispatcher.

 

Authorities said Anthony Henderson Jr. 19, broke into the home at 586 S. Lynnbank Road on Thursday while the teen and his 17-year-old sister were home.

 

The boy told the dispatcher that Henderson pointed a handgun at him, but Vance County Sheriff Peter White said deputies found no weapon on Henderson.

 

Henderson stumbled outside after being shot and was found dead on the lawn.

 

Deputies have charged Andrew Terry, 23, of 113 N. Woods Drive, with felony breaking and entering, conspiracy to commit breaking and entering and injury to real property in the case. They also are searching for two other men – Seneca Henderson, 20, of 907 S. Beckford Drive, No. 134, and Jatwaun Davis, 21, of 199 Belle Russell Road.

 

The boy's sister called 911 to report that someone was banging on the door trying to get in. She said she was hiding in her bedroom closet but told the dispatcher that her brother had a gun.

 

After the brother got on the phone, the dispatcher ordered him to put down his shotgun.

 

"I don't know how many it was (who broke in). Just one came around the corner. I got one more in the chamber. I'm going to shoot again," the boy said.

 

"Do not, while I’m on the phone, do not fire that firearm, OK?" the dispatcher said.

 

"What if another one comes in the house, ma'am?" he asked.

 

"Let me know, OK, if you see anybody. I will let you know (when a deputy gets to the house)," the dispatcher responded.

 

As the boy and his sister waited for deputies to arrive, he told the dispatcher that he was "perfectly fine," but his sister was "really shaken up."

 

If the LEOs were expected within a minute, I can sort of understand the dispatchers orders. If they were still several minutes away, I don't.

Just typical... "nobody can help you but the government"... I would tell that dispatcher to KMA...

 

Wonder if somebody broke in on the dispatcher while she was at home alone... would she wait?

 

When seconds count... the cops are always minutes away. Ain't never had a cop availble when I needed 'em. Never.

 

But when I don't need 'em... I go take an absolutely necessary leak in a nearby stream... and the dam Boulder CO police swarm and arrest me for indecent exposure. What in the hell... shshsheeeeshshsh.

The dispatcher need a lot more training and she has to think

about whats going on! I agree KMA would be a the proper thing

to say at that point! Once the Police arrive and I see the

uniform I'll put the gun down!

1 more for the good guys........yee haa

Remember the first officer on the scene of a call like that is not always in uniform.

Good job to the 14 year old protecting his sister and himself...

 

If a non-uniformed officer arrived on seen first it would be expected that he strongly identify himself and be able to show his badge.

Right ! That LEO would strongly I.D. him or her self first , then I'll put my weapon down.

 

 

 

But, when someone brakes into this home, I'm thinking he or she is going to kill one of my family members, so I'm going to kill that person first .

 

And I ALWAYS sleep with a 1911 45 atuo under my pillow !
