Good update. Turns out the defender was only 14!!!
http://arkansasmatters.com/news-fulltext?nxd_id=380857Hot Springs Police say they doubt a 14-year-old who blasted a 17-year-old with a shotgun will face any charges for defending his home. The 14-year-old fired the shotgun into the older boy's face, and he's now hospitalized on life support.
