    Teen Kills Home Intruder with .410

    http://www.vicksburgpost.com/article...ews/news02.txt

    A teen shot and killed a home intruder Sunday night, stopping a theft in progress and sending the intruder's accomplices scurrying, said Sheriff Martin Pace.

    Found dead in front of a mobile home in South Warren County was Jonathan Bruce, 21, 3341 Sunnybrook Drive in Jackson, said Coroner Doug Huskey.

    Bruce had been shot once with a .410 shotgun and had stumbled out of the mobile home, Pace said.

    The teen, who was not identified, was not arrested or charged. Pace said details of the investigation will be presented to the district attorney, but it appeared the shooting -- Warren County's first homicide of the year -- will be deemed justifiable.

    Pace said the adults who lived in the home where Bruce was shot made a living as street vendors. He said Bruce and two other men had forced their way into the mobile home at 25 Red Oak Drive about 7 p.m. after inquiring about purchasing shoes. The teen and several other juveniles were alone when the trio entered.

    Pace said after the men got inside, they started "loading up merchandise" until the teen got a shotgun and fired it at Bruce, who had a handgun in his pocket. After being shot, Bruce turned and walked out onto the lawn, where he was found when deputies arrived. The other men fled in a sedan.


    Pace said Warren County officers were working with counterparts in the Jackson Police Department to identify Bruce's companions, said to have been in a white sedan without a tag.

    The City of Vicksburg recorded 10 homicides in 2007. Until the next-to-the-last night of the year, Warren County outside Vicksburg had recorded none.


    Good for the kid, I am thinking a .410 at close range will do the job quite nicely.

    Thats another one we won't have to worry about. Mike, one of the most popular shotguns for home defense is the 20 guage Coach Gun. Shorter than most shotguns for easier handling and the 20 has less kick and flash. Being a double barrel its always ready for two quick shots.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    410 will do the trick just fine. Its important to understand there is little power difference between 410/20/12 gauge. These numbers we commonly see are about the size of payload, not power.

    That's it in a nutshell - smaller payload - about same velocity. Very suitable defence tool in close situations.

    Hey Hey!!

    Shot once with a shotgun and then makes it to the front lawn. No need for bloodhounds on this one. Johnny, you should have gone bowling instead of trying to steal. Quick thinking teenager. Get that kid another box of shells.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    I agree completely. I was not surprised that the .410 did the job, I was just making a statement. My next firearms purchase is going to be the Remington 870 Model 81180. 20 ga, Knoxx Spec-ops stock, pistol grip, and 6+1 capacity. Perfect for the wife to use when I am working nights.

    Bravo Zulu on that kid! I hope he also gets help handeling the 'after-the-event' mental aspects of his ordeal.

    Wonder if he was using the Taurus Judge. Nice shooting.
