An attempted burglary early monday by 3 teenage suspects was cut short when a 14 year old resident who was home alone fired at them with a shotgun, striking 1 suspect in the face. The injured suspect staggered to the yard outside and fell down and his 2 buddies dragged him down the street and around the corner where they left him behind a car at another residence. The other 2 guys took off running. The police showed up and found the injured guy and later in the day found the other 2 guys. It did not kill him. He was sent to St. Joe and transferred to Little Rock. He's in critical condition. The cops said they didn't anticipate any charges being filed against the 14 year old. The guys who broke, 2 were 17 and one was 18. This happened in Hot Springs. This is exactly why I keep a couple of guns throughout the house. You never know when some lowlife is gonna come in and try something stupid. Glad this young kid knew what to do in a situation like this. IMO, whoever taught him about guns, taught him well.
