    Someone drove up to the home and fired shots into the window Tuesday night. Police will not say if they have any suspects in this latest shooting, but reporter Trish Williford saw officers outside the home for much of Wednesday morning.
    George Wyant, the homeowner, showed Channel 9 the shotgun hole in the window of his sunroom where his 74-year-old wife was sound asleep.

    "My wife is scared to death, grandson scared to death every time they hear a noise," Wyant said.

    Charlotte-Mecklenburg police detectives were called to the Rolling Fields Road home Wednesday, the second time in just over a week.

    Wyant said police told him someone pulled their car off of Highway 218, walked right up to the back of the home and opened fire.

    Wyant believes this shooting may have been in retaliation for the deadly shooting at his home that happened just over a week ago.

    Wyant's 14-year-old grandson shot and killed Isai Delcid, 18, who police say broke into the family's home to steal prescription pills.

    Delcid's older brother, Carlos, was with him. He was arrested on burglary charges.

    Wyant said he told police about his retaliation theory.

    "They felt the same. They're going to investigate all they can," Wyant said.

    Wyant said his daughter is now afraid to bring his grandchildren to the home.

    They plan to spend Christmas someplace else.

    Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said the second man involved in a home break-in that turned deadly near the Charlotte/Mint Hill border has been arrested. Another suspected intruder was killed when a 14-year-old inside the house shot and killed him Tuesday night.

    The two intruders, who police identified as 18-year-old Isai Delcid and his 22-year-old brother Carlos Delcid, attempted to break into the home on Rolling Fields Lane just after 5 p.m., according to investigators. Isai was shot and died at the scene while police said Carlos fled.

    Officers arrested Carlos late Tuesday night and charged him with first-degree burglary.

    Police said a grandmother was at the home with her grandson at the time. According to officers, the grandson shot and killed Isai.

    The grandfather, George Wyant, told Channel 9 his 14-year-old grandson shot the intruder.

    "It’s not something you can be proud of. But, I’m happy the way it turned out. Because my wife is getting over an illness," Wyant said.

    Wyant said he heard about the break-in and shooting from a neighbor, and many neighbors are shocked.

    Wyant told Channel 9 that the suspects parked their car in the driveway, walked up the steps to his back porch and tried to get into his house through a back window. That's when he said his grandson came to the window and told them to stop.

    "He was coming through the window and my grandson said, ‘Stop, I have a gun," said Wyant.

    Wyant said the suspect, Isai Delcid, wouldn't listen. He said that's when Isai broke through the window and his grandson started firing.

    Wyant said he left the gun in the home for protection. He said his grandson fired three shots from his Glock 380. At least one bullet hit and killed the 18-year-old.

    A bullet hole could be seen in the wood railing of the porch, highlighted by a police evidence marker.

    Officers said the intruder’s brother, Carlos, ran from the scene but police quickly tracked him down because of his electronic monitor.

    Investigators said Carlos was already on probation for breaking into the same house twice in the past four months -- once in September and again in October.
    Wyant said he believes Carlos targeted his house after seeing his wife's prescription pills while performing duct work in the attic.

    "I got a look at the duct in the bathroom and she came in too. They had taken all of her medicine," he said.

    Police had used fingerprints to identify Delcid as the suspect in a second break-in at the home in October.

    Prosecutors later dismissed the charge, but were going ahead with a case charging Delcid in a break in just 12 days later. Delcid was out on bond and wearing an electronic monitor when police said he and his brother tried to break into the Wyants’ home again.

    Eyewitness News went to Delcid’s apartment but no one answered the door Wednesday afternoon.
    A woman who answered the door at his parents’ home said they did not want to comment on the case.

    Wyant said he has taken his grandson to the shooting range to teach him how to use a gun, but he’s still surprised by his quick actions Tuesday night.

    Wyant said his grandson was protecting his grandmother, who can barely get around, and he said he's grateful his grandson knew where the gun was and that he and his wife are OK.

    "What would have happened if he didn't have it, if I didn't go out and get it?” Wyant asked.
