The boy shot a .357 magnum at a gunman who came into his house.
The 11-year old told Police about 7:15 Wednesday night that several juveniles kicked in the back door at his home in the 200 block of Tremont Avenue.
He said a boy with a pistol came into the house and pointed the gun at him.
That's when the 11-year old fired the .357. He said that scared the home invader off.
The Gang Unit is investigating because they think it could be gang related. They are not releasing the 11-year old's name for his protection.
