Three Armed Thugs Invaded a home and attempted to gang rape a 19-Year-Old — but They Didn’t Come Prepared for Grandpa!
The bad news: The hero, 67-year-old Kenneth Byrd, was seriously injured in a shootout with the three scumbags who invaded their home and terrorized Byrd, his wife and their teenage granddaughter.
Update good news: Grandpa took several bullets – but survived! Making this the feel-good story of the year!
A Lumberton man is recovering after exchanging gunfire with three suspects who forced their way into his home and allegedly attempted to rape his granddaughter. Robeson County Sheriff Kenneth Sealey said around 10 p.m. Monday, deputies were called to 67-year-Kenneth Byrd’s home in the 100 block of Yedda Road in east Lumberton about a reported shooting.
When authorities arrived, they found Byrd suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. His wife, 65-year-old Judy Byrd, and their 19-year-old granddaughter were also at the home.
The family told officials that the incident started when a man came to their door claiming to have car problems and needed water. Two other men wearing black clothing, ski masks and gloves then forced their way into the house and demanded money.
All three suspects were armed.
The elderly couple was forced to the back of the home and ordered to open a safe. Then the losers made their fatal mistake: They tried to rape the couple’s granddaughter, which prompted Kenneth Byrd to grab his gun and start blasting the bastards. Go Grampa!
All the invaders were injured, before fleeing in Byrd’s Cadillac. 20-year-old Jamie Lee Faison, was later found dead from a gunshot wound inside Byrd’s stolen vehicle on Singletary Church Road in Lumberton. Shame. Hate when that happens.
For those keeping score, that’s Second Amendment: 3, Scumbags: 0
