deadly shootout

A horrific home invasion had a happy ending when a grandfather was able to step in and save his teenage granddaughter from an attempted gang rape. The man was able to shoot back at the armed intruders, killing one and sending the other two to the hospital for emergency surgery, according to a local news report:

The incident started around 10 pm at a house on Yedda Road in Lumberton [North Carolina] on Monday night when someone knocked on the home of the grandfather, his wife and their 19-year-old granddaughter, according to the sheriff’s office.

Two of three men – all wearing black clothes, ski masks and gloves – stormed into the house and demanded money, officials said.

The grandfather and his wife ended up in the back of the house and were directed at gunpoint to open a safe. The three men were all armed and tried to rape the teen girl, officials said.

The 67-year-old grandfather managed to grab a gun and shot all three of the suspects. The suspects fired back and the grandfather was hit several times, deputies said.

After that, all three wounded suspects fled in the grandfather’s gold Cadillac.

Later, the sheriff’s office was contacted when 2 men with gunshot wounds showed up at McLeod Hospital in Dillon.

Deputies received information that took them to Singletary Church Road near Lumberton where they found Jamie Lee Faison, age 20, dead inside the stolen Cadillac. He died from gunshot wounds, deputies said.

Unfortunately, the grandfather isn’t out of the woods yet – a relative reported on Facebook that he is in the ICU. Pray for a swift recovery for this everyday hero who was just trying to protect his family from violent thugs.
