Grandpa Shoots 3 Armed Robbers, Kills One As They Attempt To Rape Granddaughter

Posted in: , ,
This is definitely one tough and heroic grandpa! Homeowner, Kenneth Byrd, 67, was shot multiple times, but he managed to stop 3 armed home invaders from raping his 19 year old granddaughter as well as stealing all the money in the home.

He was being forced to open his safe by one of the thugs, while the other two began to molest the young girl, but the grandpa had the presence of mind, and the courage too, to bring out his own gun and shoot all 3 thugs. One of them, Jamie Faison, 20, died from his injuries.

The others, Brandon Carver Stephens, 28, of Fairmont and Jamar Hawkins, 17, were wounded enough to turn themselves into local hospitals where they were then arrested!

This is from a public release by Robeson County Sheriff Kenneth Sealey.

According to witnesses, a man, his wife, and his 19-year-old granddaughter were home on Yedda Road in Lumberton when a black male knocked on their door and asked for water for his mechanical problems with his car.

Two other people entered the home wearing black clothing, ski masks and gloves asking for money. All three suspects also had handguns, according to the release.

The release states that the man and his wife were forced into the back of the house and advised to open the safe while the suspects attempted to rape the 19-year-old granddaughter.

The man was then able to retrieve a weapon and several shots were fired between the man and the suspects in the house. The man was struck multiple times by gunshots and the suspects then fled the scene in his vehicle.

The man was transported to Southeastern Regional Medical Center and later airlifted to another medical facility where he remains in serious condition, according to the release.

Officers later received a call from the McLeod Hospital in Dillon and discovered that Stephens and Hawkins had been shot. Both were airlifted to another medical facility for emergency surgery.

Jamie Lee Faison, 20, was later found in the man's stolen vehicle deceased, where he had been shot, according to the release.

Stephens, Hawkins, and Faison are possible persons of interest in other home invasions.
