Investigators say the homeowner spotted 19-year-old Kevin Mitchell hopping the fence in the middle of the afternoon, so she ran into the backyard with her children to confront him.
Police say Mitchell pulled a gun on the family, but the tables quickly turned after the woman’s son pulled his own weapon and opened fire.
He hopped back over the fence and into a car. He ended up at a local hospital.
All of this happened back in March, but he was only arrested last week.
