    14 year old kills intruder

    Defending himself, mother, boy kills intruder
    14-year-old fires once, hits man in head

    By Beth Wilson and Mary Ann Cavazos Caller-Times
    October 10, 2006


    Police said a 14-year-old boy was defending himself and his mother when he shot and killed an intruder Monday afternoon at their home on Ocean Drive.

    Capt. John Houston said the 14-year-old boy, whose name was not released, was home from school after becoming ill, and his 46-year-old mother, Rose Ann Kozlowski, had just returned from the grocery store when she was confronted by a man with a knife.

    Cmdr. Jesse Garcia confirmed during a news conference that police received a call from one of the residents of 4221 Ocean Drive at 12:55 p.m. and responded to a report of a man tying them up and holding them at knifepoint.

    The man, only identified as a black man in his 30s or 40s, led the mother and son to the upstairs master bedroom, where he bound their hands with men's ties and ransacked the house for valuables.

    "He packed up her SUV in the garage with those items. He threatened to kill them repeatedly," Houston said.

    After the robber caught the woman trying to untie herself once, she was able to free herself and her son and find her husband's pistol in a security box under the bed. She tried to shut double doors to the bedroom as the man tried to push them open and her son held the gun.

    "She was using all her strength to push them," Houston said, adding that the boy aimed at the man through a space in the door and fired one shot.

    "He shot once and hit him in the head, killing him instantly," Houston said. "He took a life-saving measure to save his mother and himself."

    Soon after the incident, police cars lined Ocean Drive near the house, which is between Ocean View Place and Aberdeen Avenue, and neighbors stood nearby watching officers investigate.

    Houston said police also are investigating the possibility the man had an accomplice because neighbors reported seeing two black men in a green 1970s four-door sedan, possibly a Lincoln Continental, driving slowly around the neighborhood a couple hours before the incident.

    On the news last night the police chief said they would investigate like a homicide, present to the grand jury, but expected no charges to be filed as it looked like it met the requirements for self-defense.

    That is impressive for anyone, especially a 14 year old.

    That's great that the kid had the guts to do what he had to do. It takes a lot of ture grit to pull the trigger under preasure. That sure wasn't a piece of paper he was killing.

    Turns out the offender was sentenced to 45 years in prison in 1984 for this same offense: breaking into a house, tying a couple up, and robbing them.

    This evening the news interviewed the ex-wife of the offender. She says the robbery/death was the system's fault for not making sure he stayed off drugs after being released. ????

    I think she said he was released, did well for a year, then went back on drugs.


    Maybe it was "the system's" fault for releasing him early.

    Man, that's "shades" of the past! We (my family, in a violent home invasion) were attacked by a "man" that was released from the system for a very similar crime... I often say that we were attacked by "the system", because they are the ones that let the guy out early in the first place...

    Just another reminder if your awake you should be armed.
    A 45 year sentence should mean 45 YEARS and not one %$!&*#@ day earlier.
