In a much scarier version of Home Alone, a robbery in Canarsie was foiled on Sunday night by a 10-year-old boy. Police say two men posing as FedEx deliverymen entered the house and ordered two teens, possibly the boy's siblings, to stay in the living room. The boy ran upstairs to his bedroom, and when one of the men followed him, he slammed the door on his arm, forcing the man to drop his gun. The boy then picked up the gun and fired it. Thankfully, no one was hit and the shot scared off the would-be robbers.
