PHOENIX - Authorities say a man is expected to recover after he was shot by a 14-year-old boy Friday.
Phoenix police Officer James Holmes said the teen was home with his 8, 10 and 12-year-old siblings when a woman started knocking on the door.
The 14-year-old did not recognize her so he didn't answer the door of the home near 55th Avenue and Baseline Road.
A short time later a man started knocking on the door and again the boy refused to answer the door.
Holmes said the youngster then went upstairs with his siblings and retrieved a handgun.
As the boy returned to the top of the stairs, the man broke through the door and pointed a gun at him.
The boy fired his weapon, striking the suspect.
The 14-year-old called his parents and ran with his siblings to a neighbor's home.
