    A 17-year-old suspect is being treated in a Little Rock hospital after being shot during a home invasion in Hot Springs. Police have not yet revealed who shot the suspect.
    No details, but the bad guys went down. Planning a home invasion in Arkansas is kinda like the same in Texas.....everybody knows us rednecks been shootin since we could stand!

    Officers learned that three black males were attempting to break into a residence in the 200 block of Noles when a teen that was home alone shot at the suspects striking one of them.

    Good update. Turns out the defender was only 14!!!

    Hot 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.

    Sounds like there may be more to the story, but.... the 14 yr old had a right to defend himself from them breaking into it .... and the potential to do him great bodily harm or death.

    That is why my 1911 has 6+1. There would have been 3 double tapped criminals and the 7th round to finish off whoever decided to live long enough to attempt to raise their gun off the floor.

    Well, I gotta say, when you're home alone, and three thugs try to break in, you really don't have much choice. Especially if you're only 14. Good Job! Excellent outcome!

    I bet the one on life support won't be doing that anymore. Shot in the face with a shotgun... Ouch, that's gonna leave a mark!

    Good job by the young man. The price of home invasion is going up.

    Nice shooting on the part of the resident. If the dirtbag shot was a 'twin' you'll now be able to him apart from his brother.

    Good thing the 14 year old had access to the weapon. How would the story be different if it had been "locked up safely"?
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    Yeah me too.

    My 16 year old sis has been home alone during a home invasion. On the phone with 911 with a .38 in her hands. Had it been me, I probably wouldda shot the dude, but I'm thankful for her that he realized the error of his ways and fled.

    this is the type of consequences that will really have an affect on the crime rate.
    Good shoot.

    Of course you will only hear this one little snippet and then back to good ole' 'Guns kill people" argument.

    Not robbers breaking into peoples home with weapons and the intent to conduct grave harm or kill people and the victim was able to stop them with a gun.

    This is just another tick-mark in the Brady Bunch's "gun violence" column.
