There are a few questions remaining... but so far, it looks like they young man protected his father and "his father's wife," By getting dad's gun and shooting one of the three invaders... The other two drove off, but were apparently apprehended later.
It could be worse!
...another warning to those who think it can't happen to me...I'm in my own home minding my own business...

This is why I have started carrying my home defense gun on my hip or very close by when I am at home. You just never know.
Saw this on another forum today.

Stories like this are why I will be buying a gun in 8 months when I turn 21. I can't imagine what would have happened to this mans mother and father had he not been armed.

It amazes me, that given the current gun "control" controversy that these incidents don't get more national attention. This is more common than many think, and luckily most result in successful personal defense with no one being shot. In any case, another example of why we must fight to retain our 2A rights. Thanks for posting.

The report takes longer than the incident itself, apparently. Good reporting. If only we could see these on the network news......
