11-year-old Chris Gaither from Talladega, Alabama is a no-nonsense kid. So when he noticed that there was an intruder in the house last week while he was home alone, he grabbed a 9mm handgun and went-a-shootin'!
Chris confronted the intruder, but the guy didn't seem to be too bothered by him so he just kept walking around the house looking for treasures. When he finally made a run for it, that's when Chris started firing. The burglar, who inexplicably was carrying a hamper that he stole from the house, was running across the front lawn and attempting to jump a fence. The 11-year-old had already fired 11 shots and missed, but the twelfth one...that was the one that finally brought him down! The bullet went through the hamper and into the guy's leg.
And that's when Chris turned into a real gangster. While describing the whole ordeal to news reporter, Chris said, "It went straight through the back of him, in his leg. And he started crying like a little baby. I hope you learned your lesson for comin' to this house trying to steal stuff." Daaaaamn, Chris! You're cold!
The burglar is recovering in the hospital. Chris will not be charged with any crime. And life returns to normal in Talladega.
