Sounds like the plot of a cheesy action movie, but this is exactly what happened when armed home invaders burst into a home in Brooklyn (side note, how were they armed when guns are practically illegal in NYC?).

The two armed men forced their way into the residence around 6:00pm. After ordering two teenagers onto the ground, a 9 year old boy was the only other occupant of the home at the time.

According to ABC, the men may have gained access to the home by posing as deliverymen.

When the suspects tried to come after him, the boy, who was in an upstairs bedroom, slammed the bedroom door on the suspect’s arm hard enough to force him to drop his weapon. The boy then picked up the gun and opened fire.

The suspects fled the home after the gunfire started. No one was injured in the incident.
