14-year-old Andrew Mason refused to respond to the two teenagers repeatedly ringing the doorbell of his North Las Vegas home. Instead, he hustled his younger siblings to a closet, grabbed his cell phone, and loaded his .22LR rifle. The two criminals force their way through the front door in a home invasion.
When the teens opened the door where Andrew was hiding, they found themselves staring down the barrel of his rifle.
A North Las Vegas teen is being hailed a hero after scaring home invaders away with a rifle and protecting his young brother and sister in the process.
The break-in occurred in the middle of the day at a home located near Ann Road and Aliante Parkway.
It was a call that Kiewa Mason said he’d hoped to never get from his son.
“I said, ‘Is everything OK? And he said, ‘No, someone has broken into our house,’” Mason said.
Kiewa Mason’s 14-year-old son Andrew Mason was home with his brother and sister, both 6 years old.
“I went upstairs and grabbed my brother and told him to hide in the closet. I grabbed a cell phone off my dad’s dresser, grabbed my rifle and hid in the closet with my brother,” Andrew Mason said.
Kiewa Mason said his family has practiced for this scenario.
“I believe in the right to bear arms, and it’s not like he was foreign to it. We go to the shooting range quite often. We go to the Clark County shooting range quite often. We go to Range 702,” Kiewa Mason said.
