A family is in mourning today after an unidentified attacker killed their 17 year-old son in their home.
Authorities are saying that the unidentified attacker entered the home through an unlocked door and stabbed the 17 year-old, killing him. During the assault, the deceased’s sister, 12, ran to a neighbor’s house for help. The neighbor, an unnamed Good Guy With A Gun, responded immediately.
Returning to the scene of the assault, the attacker attempted to stab the neighbor, who responded with immediate, lethal force; saving himself and the 12 year-old sister.
What, however, is there to say about this? The neighbor is a hero and there’s no truly “good” ways this could have been prevented, short of locking the door and arming the home-alone teens.
Our condolences to the family, who have been robbed of their son by a Bad Man With A Knife.
Our congratulations to the neighbor, a man who was the embodiment of Being Your Own First Responder.
