Son Shoots at Home Invaders Who Shot Dad in Mouth
Two armed robbers entered the home of several migrant workers on SW 141st Avenue at 282nd Street last night. They demanded cash and valuables, but one man decided to fight back. They subdued him and held him at gunpoint, eventually shooting him the mouth.
The man's son went inside, retrieved a gun, and fired at the robbers, who fled. It's believed that neither suspect was shot, but they're still at large.
The son then drove his father to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he's in critical condition. [CBS4]
