An Evansville, Indiana grandfather is a hero today after killing a man attacking his granddaughter.
The 79-year-old man was home when he heard his 17-year-old granddaughter having an argument with a 19-year-old male acquaintance of hers. As the girl ran from the house, the 19-year-old followed her from the house and started beating her.
Witnesses say the grandfather went outside and, when he tried to break up the fight, the attacker threatened him with a stun gun. How would you handle it? This grandfather drew his handgun and opened fire on the attacker to save his granddaughter.
It worked. The 19-year-old abandoned his attack and began to flee before collapsing in a neighboring yard here he was pronounced dead.
Like I said, grandpa's a hero.
