Louisiana boy, 12, shoots and kills armed burglar who broke into his home and threatened his mother

A 12-year-old boy grabbed a hunting rifle and shot dead an armed burglary suspect who broke into his family’s house in Louisiana and attacked his mother last week.

The violent home invasion unfolded at around 7,20am on June 30 in the 5800 block of Winchester Lane near Clinton, according to a news release from the East Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Brad LeBlanc, 32, was armed with a pistol when he encountered the female resident outside her house that morning.

LeBlanc forced the woman inside, and a struggle ensued between them. Her son, who authorities have not named, feared for his mother’s life and shot LeBlanc with a hunting rifle, said Sheriff Jeffrey Travis.

The Vidalia man was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Good job son.

And I hope this boy gets the emothional help he needs to process what he’s done.

It was a good shoot, but I can imagine that it’s still emotionally difficult for a child to process.

Prayers for his mental health and the well-being of his family.

Spread the love

  1. Let’s make sure the help is really clear about the moral goodness of what he did.

    I wonder at times: would an 12 year old in this same scenario 200 years ago have had any difficulty with that action? If not, what is being done wrong that it is a problem nowadays?
