BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) - Police in Bellingham, Wash., say a 10-year-old boy defended his mother from an attacker by shooting him in the face with a BB rifle as many as four times.
The man accused of the attack rents a room in the woman's home and came home drunk and angry Tuesday morning. Police say he kicked in a bedroom door and started choking the woman.

HE’LL SHOOT YER EYE OUT!
I couldn’t resist
dang, beat me by 50 some seconds
LOL, there’s a Marine recruiter standing outside this kid’s house now.
Was the intruder Black Bart?
Give that young man some training and a decent gun to protect himself and his Momma. He show gread courage and fortitude, much needed in today’s society.
and it was a pump action bb gun too! those weren’t real quick shots.
I’m surprised I got it posted that quickly. Normally my posts of this sort are just a feeble GMTA. :-)
Good job, kid!
Heck yeah! If I lived there I’d buy him a CO2 powered repeater so he could get more shots off next time!
Nowadays, he's better known as Youthful Bart.
Just think if he had used a .22!
Heh, in the words of a famous politician - you betcha!
A CO2 powered rifle could kill the intruder. FACT.
Some of them cost lots of bucks and have a velocity like a .22 rifle.
One of those between the eyes and it is over. Not a toy.
Cudos for the 10 year old.
That, or perhaps an advertising rep from Daisy.
not the ones that use those little disposable bic lighter sized cartridges.
He deserves a .22, lots of cartridges, and some training. I would do it for free if I lived in Washington.
“Police say 10-year-old boy fought off mother's attacker with BB gun”
Police said Newman tried to get back into the home through an unlocked window, and as the victim tried to shut the window, Newman grabbed her arm.
When the woman couldnt break Newmans grip, her son came into the room with a pump-action BB rifle, police said.
Police said once Newman saw the rifle, he made threats to kill both the victim and her son.
