    CEDAR CITY - Police in southern Utah are calling a 17-year-old boy a hero after he fatally stabbed an armed intruder who broke into his family's home early Wednesday.
    Iron County Sheriff Mark Gower described the boy as a level-headed kid "who, in my opinion, saved his family's lives."
    It all began when a 19-year-old Las Vegas man, who was recently fired from a construction company owned by the family, broke into their home at 2650 N. 2200 West, near Cedar City, and held the boy and his parents at gunpoint.

    Wow, poor kid to have to go through that. It s a good thing that he saved his family but I feel bad for him to have to deal with killing someone.

    Especially with a knife, that makes it close-up and personal!

    We can pray that this memory is buried deeply for this young man....
