Boy, 10, Fights Off Robbers With Their Own Gun

A 10-year-old in Brooklyn appears to be well on his way to becoming Batman.

Then one of the men made the mistake of attempting to reach into an upstairs room, gun in hand ... spurring the 10-year-old boy to slam the door on him, causing him to drop the gun, which the boy grabbed.
