84-Year Old Grandpa Shoots Intruders to Protect Grandson

A pair of masked intruders walked on 84-year-old Robert Elliot’s property where his grandson was staying and the senior citizen didn’t wait for police to arrive.

WGN9 reported on Friday, that the intruders used an ax to break down the door of their barn and creeping towards the home where his grandson was staying, Elliot grabbed his rifle and opened fire.

Neither intruder was shot but they became spooked by the gunshots and fled the scene. They were later arrested in a cornfield and Elliot said he’s ready if they plan on coming around again.
