A 15-year-old is being credited for saving a woman from being abducted last week. Officials are saying that the teenager shot and killed 48-year old Sammy Michael Fears when Fears tried to abduct a woman from her Wright, Wyoming home.
There are still a lot of details missing from this story, as not much has been released. But according to K2radio.com, the teen is not being charged for shooting the man, and this looks like a clear case of self-defense. And that’s possibly the reason why we have not heard much press on this story.
GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — Campbell County sheriff’s officials say a 15-year-old boy fatally shot a man who was trying to abduct a woman in Wright.
The shooting happened Wednesday night.
Sheriff’s officials said Friday they had responded to reports of an attempted abduction at a home in Wright. They arrived to find 48-year-old Sammy Michael Fears, of Casper, wounded in the driveway. Fears died on the way to the hospital.
It’s not clear how the teen became involved. Sheriff’s Cpl. Gary Sams says the teenage shooter had no family relationship to either Fears or the woman.
He says Fears and the woman had a history of domestic violence going back a few years.
Gillette media is reporting that the teen has not been charged.
While many gun control activists will have us believe that stories like this just don’t happen, it’s not the first time we have reported on teenagers using guns to save lives. But in almost every case it’s because a parent was willing to take the time to teach a child proper gun safety and responsibility.
