12-year-old boy fatally shoots armed home intruder who threatened mom; 2 other suspects arrested: Cops

Late last month, a 12-year-old Louisiana boy reportedly shot and killed a home intruder who held his mother at gunpoint and threatened her.

The reported incident unfolded on June 30 at a residence in East Feliciana Parish. Police said Brad Leblanc, 32, (not pictured) forced a female resident into her home at gunpoint, prompting a struggle which ended with the woman’s 12-year-old son shooting Leblanc with a hunting rifle, according to WBRZ.

Leblanc died from his injuries, and police arrested two suspects, Jonathan Barker and Jennifer Bond, in connection with last month’s deadly home invasion.

Barker was charged with second-degree murder, principal to aggravated burglary, and principal to aggravated kidnapping. Bond was charged with being an accessory after the fact, but authorities have not publicly revealed her involvement in the reported home invasion.

WBRZ reported that the boy is not expected to face any criminal charges in this case.
