A BC teen with a gun to his head by 2 assailants who mistook the home for someone else, had the tables turned on them, after the criminal shot the teens brother, the frightened teen wrestled the gun away from one of the Home invaders and shot him dead, as the other criminal escaped.
Tragic as it is that this Teen had to take a life, it shows when faced with death, adrenaline and survival takes over.
Bottom line the Teen is a Hero, saving his Brothers life, by snuffing out a criminal otherwise who would serve little time in jail or get out on bail and saving BC Taxpayers the grief of a long and useless trial.
