Old Man Shoots 3 Burglars Trying To Rape His Granddaughter


An elderly man in North Carolina has been praised for preventing three burglars from raping his granddaughter after disarming one of them and shooting all three. 


Three men, wearing all black and ski masks, broke into the man’s home and held him at gunpoint whilst ordering him to empty his safe. Whilst that was happening, they then focused their attentions on the man’s granddaughter and preceded to attempt to rape her.

In the commotion, the grandfather took and wrestled a gun off one of the burglars and shoot all three of them, leaving two injured and one dead. Sadly, however, he was himself shot.

He is currently in a critical condition after being air-lifted to a close by hospital.


A relative had this to say on the situation:

He is out of surgery but is still critical in ICU!! Thanks everyone for all your prayers just keep them coming!!! But the intruders have been caught!!!

Our thoughts are with him and his family.
