A 61-year-old Indiana man defended his younger brother from an attack early Tuesday morning, fatally shooting a knife-wielding home intruder.

Barry Frost, 59, and Terah Frost, 61, live at home with their 86-year-old mother, Yvonne Frost, in Orange County, Ind. According to WHAS, after the brothers heard an intruder break into the home, they moved their mother to her bedroom for protection and ventured downstairs.

Seeing only a broken door but no intruder, the brothers began looking for tools to fix the destruction.

But when brother Barry Frost opened the door to the cellar he was attacked by a man wearing a bandana and a hoodie and carrying a knife.

Terah Frost heard the altercation, came into the room and shot the attacker with a handgun, later identified as 23-year-old Jacob Grimes, killing him on the spot.
