On Monday night, a 10-year-old boy managed to disarm a home invasion robber who was trying to get into his Brooklyn bedroom—the boy slammed his door into the robber's arm, prompting the man to drop the weapon. Then the boy took the robber's gun and fired it, scaring off the perp and his crony. Now the police say that the boy actually traded gunfire!
According to the police, at about 5:15 p.m., two men entered the East 80th Street home in the Canarsie section. One was wearing a FedEx uniform and holding a box. The second man followed, and both demanded money from nine people in the home. The police say the suspect wearing the FedEx uniform tried to enter the boy's bedroom, but dropped his gun after the boy slammed the door. Then the boy fired the gun, which then resulting in the second man firing his gun.
No one was injured, but the police are looking for the suspects, who are described as men in their 20s. Here's video of the suspect entering the home and going up the stairs
