A home alone teenager used his mother's gun to kill a burglar in a shoot-out, South Carolina officials say.
Police said the 13-year-old was in the house in Ladson on Tuesday lunchtime when he heard a vehicle pull up outside and someone trying to break in.
The teenager picked up his mother's pistol and went to the back door of the property where he opened fire.
The unidentified boy told police the person outside fired back, said authorities.
The two suspects fled in their car, and the boy continued shooting at them as they drove away, according to an affidavit.
When police arrived they had to coax the boy, who was not injured in the shootout, from the home.http://news.sky.com/story/1585952/home-alone-boy-kills-burglar-in-shootout
