    Police: 14-year-old shot intruder in Laveen home

    A 14-year-old boy shot an intruder at a Laveen home near 55th and Minton avenues Friday afternoon, police said.

    The boy was home with his three siblings, ranging in age from 8 to 12, when he saw a woman they did not recognize at the front of the house around 4:30 p.m. She began pounding on the door, said James Holmes, a Phoenix police spokesman.

    The boy went upstairs and got a handgun, police said. A man with a rifle had forced his way into the home. He aimed the gun at the boy, and the boy shot him, police said.

    The boy and his three siblings left the house and went to a neighbor's house, where the boy called police and his father, Holmes said.

    "He took an action that no police officer, certainly no one in our community, wants a 14-year-old to have to take," Holmes said. "And yet he's safe, his siblings are safe, and so now we have to figure out why this happened and why these people were there."

    Police were unsure whether the man and woman were the only two involved. There may have been other accomplices, police said.

    The man was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in critical condition, according to Jonathan Jacobs, a Phoenix Fire Department spokesman.

    Authorities were still looking for the woman Friday night. A description of the woman wasn't available, Holmes said.

    The case remains under investigation.

    Good for him. And good for his parents to teach proper gun use.

    That kid deserves a medal, as do his parents for teaching him what to do in a dangerous situation.

    Update on the story.
    I think the last line of the article should read "Tell the person, through the door, you are not interested in speaking with them AND YOU ARE ARMED." " If the person's behavior persists, tell them you have your telephone AND YOUR GUN and you are calling the police. If the person does not leave, follow through and call for police assistance."

    Police: Laveen intruder shot by 14-year-old, woman arrested in home invasion

    A woman believed to be involved in the invasion of a Laveen home last week that led to the shooting of a man by a 14-year-old boy was arrested on Thursday afternoon, police said.

    The intruder shot by the boy was released from the hospital Wednesday evening and is also in custody, said James Holmes, a Phoenix police spokesman.

    Richard Fiore, 37, was arrested on suspicion of four counts of aggravated assault, first-degree burglary and prohibited possession of a firearm, Holmes said.

    Alexis Monique Hinojos, 24, was arrested on suspicion of burglary, police said.

    It is believed Hinojos was the woman who first approached the home, which jump-started the incident, Holmes said.

    The boy was at his home near 55th and Minton avenues with his three younger siblings on June 22 when the woman pounded on the door, police said.

    The boy went upstairs and got a handgun. Fiore forced his way into the home and aimed the gun at the boy, and the boy shot him, police said.

    In the past, authorities have advised residents to ignore strangers at the door, but in light of this incident and other recent home invasions, police have modified their advice.

    They now say that if a stranger arrives at a home unannounced and unscheduled, residents should not open their doors.

    "Tell the person, through the door, you are not interested in speaking with them," Holmes said. " If the person's behavior persists, tell them you have your telephone and you are calling the police. If the person does not leave, follow through and call for police assistance."
