A little boy in Indiana loves his home and family so much, he put his life on the line to protect them from armed intruders.
The young citizen of South Bend, who is only five years of age, was with his mother at their residence last Wednesday morning when gunshots suddenly broke out as the front door was burst open.
“What you [sic] seeing was me ironing our clothes, getting our clothes, ready to start our day,” said mother Tamika Reid to local news affiliate WSBT, referring to the nanny camera inside of the house that captured the footage. “You would hear me saying, “what is that!’”
Four men forcibly entered the home, wearing hoodies and brandishing firearms.
Undeterred, young David took on the goliath attackers, hurling toys at them and trying to hit the men.
“I hit him and I tried to throw my car at him,” David recounted.
His mother, who was in a state of panic at the time, is grateful for her little boy’s courageous standoff.
“I’m just, my whole thing was my hero right here. He was trying to hit the guys. My thing was I need to get him out of the house before they do something to my son,” said Reid.
Miraculously, the tale took a turn for the better after the four men decided to prey upon someone else, fleeing the home.
According to WSTB, the South Bend Police praised David, but noted that he should never have been subject to such a scenario.

“A lot of people are saying this little boy is so brave and he deserves a gold star and that’s true, he was extremely brave in this situation,” said Christine Karsten, South Bend police spokeswoman. “But no little boy, nobody in general should have to go through something like this so it’s really important we get those who are responsible for this heinous crime off the streets.”
The investigation is ongoing, with no suspects listed at this time.
