11 Year old boy shoots at teen Intruders who are breaking into his home The 11 Year old shot one of the Intruders in the head-a 16 Year old boy How did the child get hold of the gun in the first place Not saying he was wrong but: Some neighbors are saying the shooter and the intruder were having an argument just before this happened The Question is where was the Mom?

I suppose he is old enough to stay at home alone, but I would say that it was wrong. Shooting a burglar with no arm is a no, no in my country. You can only do it when he threatens your life. However a 11 years old kid would not go to jail for this (you need to be 12 to be judged by a court for minors) but his parents would have serious troubles.

It was inferred that there might be more to this story than was first thought.

@cahaya1983 the problem with stories like this is they are hastily written... without ALL the information, so there's a lot of questions from everybody because it's really.... not the whole story.

@topffer In our country minors are less than 18 years old, and they can't be send to jail for any crime, their parents or guardians will also not be blamed; However new Govt in India has changed law and serious crime done by 16 years old could also be treated in criminal court as adult.

This is simply tragic but I think that there is much more to this story than meets the eye! Something is definitely wrong here.

I think there is more also but until the authorities talk to all the people involved we won't really know much.

It certainly is a crazy story and I guess we will hear more details in time.

I say, these parents, how they behave? They know how to do this role, or with certain people, we have to assign their children to social workers? I'm 40, I'm not a parent, but I suppose, however that the parents of the kids today, have more or less my age. If I were a father, I would act in a completely different way.

I understand and I do feel the boy should have grabbed the phone and called the phone.

That is the ultimate question, where wee the parents. The 11 year old did protect his sister, but I would never leave my kids at those ages alone in the house by themselves. That is just wrong.

@Marcyaz The parents have a lot of questions to answer here. Sad really.

@Marcyaz Well, hopefully they won't. Kids do look around. But I believe you have them locked someplace where no one would find them. I just think they are not worth having in the home. A baseball bat, well, that is a different story. And I have a nice big knife as well.

I feel so sorry for this child. Can you imagine the trauma this poor child went through and what he will continue going through? I also agree as to where were the Moms or parents.

I can't even imagine what the child is going through or has he even had time to digest that he has killed another human being.

@Marcyaz I know. This is something that he has to live with for the rest of his life. I surely hope that he goes to counseling.

It is sorry state of affairs when kids are left alone and they commit this kind of crime. Parents are to be blamed for not keeping a watch on their children and for not telling them the hazards of using a weapon.

It's sad that this had to happen. At 11 my parents did start leaving me home alone for short periods but I wasn't babysitting my sister at that point. I would be worried to leave them alone, if I was their mom.
