A brave 11-year-old is going viral for his actions to stop a home invader from robbing his family.
Esquire even called him “cold-blooded” for his calm demeanor.
Chris Gaither was home alone last Wednesday when an armed robber entered his house and threatened to kill him. Gaither — unafraid of the burglar’s threats — grabbed a 9mm handgun and shot the suspect in the leg.
Gaither in an interview with a local TV station NBC-13 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.”
Gaither then looked right into the camera and said to the intruder, “I hope you learn your lesson coming to this house trying to steal stuff.”
