14-Year-Old Stops Home Invasion – Protecting Grandma Shoots One Thug Dead, The Other Apprehended… (Video)

Grandpa had previously taken his grandson to shooting and gun safety class.

Charlotte – Burglars had tried to break into George and Anna Marie Wyant’s home near Mint Hill at least twice, so they kept a pistol hidden in the house for protection, hoping they’d never have to use it.

On Tuesday, their 14-year-old grandson was visiting. He was sick with bronchitis, and Anna Marie, 73, had just had hip replacement surgery. They were taking care of each other while his mother and the rest of the family was at a Christmas party.

The teen was headed to the kitchen to make his grandmother a bowl of rice when they heard a back window break around 5:15 p.m.

A few minutes later, Anna Marie Wyant told a 911 operator what had happened.

“The man was breaking into the window,” she told the operator. “He was halfway in the window. My grandson told him to stop and get out of here and he didn’t so my grandson shot him. … Somebody just broke in the house and we shot him.”

The Wyants’ grandson can also be heard talking in the background: “I said ‘Who is it?’ and he wouldn’t stop. And he broke my – he broke my grandma’s window so I shot three times.”

Police have said they believe the fatal shooting Tuesday was justified. They say the teen was trying to protect himself and his grandmother. He has not been charged with a crime.

Investigators said Isai Robert Delcid, 18, was killed while he and his brother Carlos Delcid were trying to break into the rear of the Wyants’ home on Rolling Fields Road. The red brick home is in a neighborhood surrounded by Mint Hill that is unincorporated and served by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers. Carlos Delcid was in Mecklenburg jail charged with first-degree burglary.

Delcid’s family could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

A shattered glass window and a section of the deck that had been hit by a gunshot were visible Wednesday, hours after police had left the scene.

The family had faced violence before.

On April 11, 2008, the Wyants’ son-in-law and the 14-year-old’s father, Gregorio “Greg” Hernandez, was working on a car at Greg’s Automotive, the shop he operated on Albemarle Road. Neighbors reported hearing shots and the sound of squealing tires leaving the scene. Police arrived to find Hernandez, 35, shot to death.

“He was a mechanic,” George Wyant said. “It was his garage. Someone came in and shot him to death.”

Two years later, a jury found Victor Vasquez guilty of first-degree murder for Hernandez’s killing. Vasquez was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. A co-defendant, Alfonzo Caballero, pleaded guilty in connection with the crime.

The Wyants’ grandson was 8 years old when his father died, but the killing was one of the things that led the Wyants to teach all their grandchildren to handle a gun once they were old enough. (Read More)

        My father taught me,( M1, 45 Colt revolver and automatic), and in our neighborhood you did not mess with the WW2 crowd. At times growing up, the Veterans would gather at our house on the back porch, for a weapons cleaning detail, bringing their M1s, Carbines, and 45s. Weapons were cleaned, beer was consumed, and stories were told. Never seen that many weapons in place, other than a gun store or Army weapons vault.

    Felony Murder – Carlos is only 22 and will soon be out to commit hundreds of additional crimes with only a burglary charge.

    Will be real interested in how this gets spun if the deceased was the wrong color. Maybe he was just a gentle giant in need of Skittles, no danger to anyone.
    It’s sad this is my knee jerk reaction, maybe I should limit my exposure to reality.

        As a young person and into my 20s & 30s I suffered, at least, an annual bout with bronchitis. It laid me out flat and rendered me useless every time.

    In our area murder rates have risen horrendously and way over 90% are by Hispanic and Hispanic gang violence. Where Tri-Cities once only have maybe one or two murders a year, they now have more than one a month due to Hispanics and Hispanic gangs. In the last 3 months there have been around a dozen murders all due to Hispanics or Hispanic gangs.

    Absolutely justified. I had a state attorney argue with me that climbing through a bathroom window did not constitute “stealthful entry”. I nearly suffered a stroke! I told her how many friends did she have who came over to visit and climbed through her bathroom window? None? Because it isn’t right you stupid..ignorant,… (Darn, there goes the rest of my function brain cells)…

    Anyway, I told her if someone climbed through my bathroom window, the responding units would find him hanging halfway in, with a hole in his forehead you could drive a truck through.

    She hung up.

    Lest we make light of it, the taking of a life, no matter the circumstances, stays with a normal person for the rest of that person’s life. That he was protecting his life and the life of his grandmother will no-doubt mitigate those feelings some, but a normal person, who feels compassion and empathy, will be affected to some extent. I’m also sure that the trauma of losing his own father to violence will color those feelings and perceptions, to the extent that he understands the whole violence-grief-loss paradigm and can empathize with the victim’s family more than we can imagine. On the other hand, he understands the profound sense of loss and grief which his successful defense of both his life and his grandmother’s life, spared his family.

    FWIW – this is in my town, my backyard! Literally 10-15 minutes from my families house.

    I have already told my spouse that if this ever happens to us in our home when I’m not there she is to do just 2 things; dial 911 and drop the phone, leaving the line open and secondly grab my 30-06 and make the announcement! Thats it…

      and yes, there is a large latino population in Charlotte, especially in certain parts of towns. North Carolina is also a favorite destination for undocumented aliens. And we recently had a bill introduced that would allow the DMV to grant Drivers Licenses to these same aliens without any real documentation at all.

      I have worked closely with known undocumented aliens (not my choice, actually called out the owners and managers often for this) and loved working with them. They work very hard, cared for their families and each other well, but that was never a substitute for the lack of respect I had for them in regards to how they chose to follow the American Dream. I would get into very heated discussions with them over that very issue. They would often laugh at me, mostly due to my lack of good conversational Spanish, saying I did not understand because I was an American and never lived where they were from in Durango, Mexico.

      There is a large amount of Latino on Latino crime in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Metro. Most involve burglury or theft, but there is also another large portion of assaults and murders. Many DUI’s and death by vehicle due to DUI’s.

  22. People should properly train their children from a young age. Our children, when very young, knew guns were dangerous (like the stove, outlets, etc.) and they were NOT TO TOUCH. They are also used to seeing Mama and Daddy carry a pistol. They understand that guns are to protect us, and our 7 year old is getting started on a .22 long gun with Daddy at the range. With all the bad things that happen, I feel it gives our children a sense of security to know that Daddy and Mama take extra steps to make sure they are safe.

    Thank goodness this 14 year old boy knew what to do or this could have turned out very badly.

    Awesome job by this lad! Teaching kids to respect firearms the right way, is the only way. It eliminates curiosity & accidents.

    I was taught by my grandfather as a young girl. Starting with: “never point a gun, unless you intend to kill them.” Also “shoot to kill.”
    He was an avid collector of. Former Navy aerial gunner (WWII), NASA, & a fed agency that “didn’t exist.” Both he & my grandmother carried their guns everywhere, his sat on seat next to him in the car- always.

    My husband in the last year took our son- then 11, & daughter-then 16 to a gun range. Each separately. And they handled & fired various firearms. They firsthand understand by seeing & feeling, the power behind. Along with the respect for guns so necessary.

    Texas A&M student body votes to allow concealed carry on campus.

    http://campusreform.org/?ID=6146

    In opposition:
    “Christopher Lyons, the president of the [ Graduate and Professional Student] Council, stressed the need to feel safe and keep guns off the university’s campus altogether.”

    The need to feel safe?

    The old “4 Spiritual Laws” tract had a graphic of a train – the engine was the facts, the coal car was your faith, and the caboose was your feelings. You put your faith in the facts, and your feelings just trail along behind.

    This guy seems to be putting the caboose first, rather like putting the cart before the horse.

    Also, for many, being defenseless does not enhance the feeling of being safe.
