In a horrific incident last week in Lumberton, North Carolina, a 67 year old man shot a trio of home-
invaders attempting to rape his teenage daughter, killing one. The grandfather, whose name has not yet
been released, was also shot in the incident and remains in critical condition.

The incident began around 10 PM when an unannounced visitor knocked on the door of the household

where the grandfather lives along with his wife and their 19 year old granddaughter. Once the door

was opened, two armed men wearing black clothes and ski masks entered the house demanding to be

handed valuables.

While the two grandparents were opening a safe towards the back of their house, a third armed

robber entered the house. The trio then attempted to rape the couple’s granddaughter, at which

point the grandfather was able to grab a gun and shoot all three burglars. After a firefight in which the

grandfather was hit with several bullets, the suspects fled in the family’s Cadillac.

Later that night, two men with gunshot wounds checked in for treatment at McLeod Hospital in Dillon.

Following leads from the pair, police found the stolen Cadillac with Jamie Lee Faison, 20, lying inside,

dead from gunshot wounds.

The heroic grandfather was taken immediately to a hospital and remains in critical condition. A family

member wrote on Facebook: “He is out of surgery but is still critical in ICU!! Thanks everyone for all

your prayers just keep them coming!!! But the intruders have been caught!!!”
