Kenny Guffey from Tennessee was on the phone with his elderly mother when an armed home invasion took place. Fortunately, Kenny was armed and in the right place at the right time to save his mother from danger. Guffey, a carry permit holder was in just the right place at just the right time to save his mother from a home invader armed with a knife and a shovel.

Luckily, he was only two minutes away from her Balsam Road home. When he arrived, he went inside with his gun drawn. “I went through the door and he was standing over her with the shovel, I didn’t see the knife, it was dark in there,” said Guffey.

Guffey said the intruder used the shovel to knock his gun out of his hand. He said he then tackled the man and got his gun back while his mother called 911. “I sat on top of him and held him down and was able to grab my gun and put it to his head and told him not to move. And I looked down saw the knife,” said Guffey.

Police arrived and arrested the suspect, identified as Colin Patrick Lynch, age 29. He faces numerous charges including especially aggravated burglary and two counts of aggravated assault.
