Liberals will not be satisfied until they make every firearm in America illegal and turn all of us into victims. We constantly see these idiots arguing for more “common sense gun control” whenever an atrocity happens, completely missing the fact that the only thing in the end that will stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Luckily, a 67-year-old grandfather had access to his firearm right after three ferocious thugs broke into his home making their intentions clear to rape his 19-year-old granddaughter who was staying there.
Local news out of Lumberton, North Carolina, was the first to report on the incident, where Kenneth Byrd relayed the horrifying ordeal. He and his family were just winding down for the night when suddenly there was an random knock on the door around 10 pm. After answering the door, that’s when Byrd was met with three armed thugs who then forced their way into the house. Immediate panic set in as the thugs wearing ski masks and gloves demanded money, forcing Byrd and his wife to the back of the home where they demanded that the elderly couple open the safe.
Byrd told authorities that the suspects then set their sights on his granddaughter, where they forced her to the ground and started trying to rape her. From that point on, complete pandemonium set in as the elderly grandfather knew he had to do get to his gun to save his family. Miraculously, he was able to reach for his gun, where an all-out fire fight then ensued between the three armed thugs and himself.
Eventually authorities arrived to the home after someone reported gunshots. They found Byrd bleeding from a gunshot wound. All three thugs were too injured, but were able to make their escape before police arrived, fleeing in Byrd’s gold Cadillac.
Byrd was seriously injured and taken to a local hospital and then later airlifted to a different hospital. The thugs didn’t make it too far in the stolen vehicle, where authorities were notified that two of the men, 28-year-old Brandon Carver Stephens and 17-year-old Jamar Hawkins had been also airlifted to a hospital after being shot by the grandfather. The third suspect wasn’t so lucky. He would later be found dead in Byrd’s stolen vehicle, identified as 20-year-old Jamie Lee Faison.
Yet another shining example of a good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy with a gun. Had this North Carolina family had not been armed that night, no telling what this pack of feral thugs would’ve done to this family after trying to rape the teenage granddaughter.
A Lumberton man is recovering after exchanging gunfire with three suspects who forced their way into his home and allegedly attempted to rape his granddaughter.
Robeson County Sheriff Kenneth Sealey said around 10 p.m. Monday, deputies were called to 67-year-Kenneth Byrd’s home in the 100 block of Yedda Road in east Lumberton about a reported shooting.
When authorities arrived, they found Byrd suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. His wife, 65-year-old Judy Byrd, and their 19-year-old granddaughter were also at the home.
The family told officials that the incident started when a man came to their door claiming to have car problems and needed water. Two other men wearing black clothing, ski masks and gloves then forced their way into the house and demanded money.
All three suspects were armed, according to Sealey.
The elderly couple was forced to the back of the home and ordered to open a safe.
The victims told authorities the suspects then tried to rape the couple’s granddaughter, which prompted Kenneth Byrd to grab a gun and fire at the men.
The men were injured, before fleeing in Byrd’s gold Cadillac. It is unclear if anything was stolen from the home.
Byrd, who was seriously injured, was taken to a local hospital, then airlifted to another hospital.
Shortly after the home invasion, authorities in Lumberton were notified that two men, 28-year-old Brandon Carver Stephens of Fairmont and 17-year-old Jamar Hawkins of Lumberton, had arrived at McLeod Medical Center in Dillon, South Carolina with gunshot wounds and were also airlifted to another hospital for treatment of their injuries.
They later found a third man, 20-year-old Jamie Lee Faison, dead from an apparent gunshot wound inside Byrd’s stolen vehicle on Singletary Church Road in Lumberton.
Authorities said they believed Faison, Stephens and Hawkins may have been involved in other home invasion robberies in the area.
