13-year-old boy stops kidnapper with a $3 toy his mom bought for him

Owen Burns was returning home from school on a typical afternoon when he overheard his sister screaming. He was irritated by the disruption her screams caused and could not perceive anything nefarious in her cries for assistance.

However, when he turned to gaze out his window, he was startled, but he immediately overcame it to make a decision that would save his life.

On his PlayStation 3, Owen Burns was getting ready to play his favorite game, “Call of Duty: Black Ops II,” when he heard his sister screaming in the backyard. The 13-year-old grew irritated because she thought she was being silly.

Later, when the teenager was in his bedroom, he noticed a stranger attempting to drag his sister, who was eight years old, to the woods bordering their house. The terrified teen seized his slingshot and gathered any nearby objects he could use as ammo, including a marble and a rock. He shot the kidnapper right between the eyes with a direct shot.

The second time, he hit him in the chest. “He was swearing. He was cussing,” Owen told the press.

The meeting took place in broad daylight at the Burns’ house in Michigan’s Alpena Township. According to their mother Maggie Burns, kidnappings are quite uncommon in the neighborhood.

His 8-year-old sister was unharmed at the end of the encounter, though she was certainly scared. The Michigan State Police did not release the identity of the 17-year-old kidnapper, but they did confirm that he will face adult charges.

“He really is the one that … I believe saved his sister’s either life or from something seriously bad happening to her,” Lt. John Grimshaw said at a news conference, calling Owen’s actions “extraordinary.” This young boy’s actions were nothing short of heroic!

The young man should be commended for his efforts, he continued. The adolescent used a standard slingshot, nothing unusual about it. It cost his mum $3 because it was on sale. The adolescent would occasionally go outside to his yard and practice shooting at old orange juice cans, which he claimed helped him improve his aim.

The boy claimed that when he initially observed a kidnapper trying to kidnap his sister, he had only one thought in mind: if the stranger was successful in his attempt, he would probably either kill his sister or use her as a sex slave.
