COWETA COUNTY, Ga. - A quick-thinking teenager stopped a burglary at his Coweta County home. He came downstairs with a realistic looking pellet gun and took aim. The two hooded men threw up their hands and ran out the front door.
Bayne Sample, 16, admitted it was a bit improvised, but said he didn’t have a choice. Good thing the Airsoft rifle looked the part. Bayne said it is a replica of a real assault rifle.
Bayne was home alone with his little brother. Their dad told FOX 5 News he was proud of himself and credits Bayne’s ROTC training at East Coweta High School for giving him both the courage and calmness.
