TALLADEGA, AL --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 nine-millimeter handgun and met the man downstairs.
Chris says the burglar threatened him before walking outside with a clothes hamper in hand.
Chris said, "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."
Police tell local station WVTM the intruder will survive and will likely face charges.
