Evening Buzz: Boy Vs. Intruders

Maureen Miller
AC360° Writer

Tonight, you'll meet the seven-year-old boy everyone is talking about. The second-grader from Norwalk, California saved his family from a home invasion. Three armed men entered his home through an unlocked front door and threatened his mom and dad. Carlos and his sister hid in bathroom with his younger sister and called 911. We'll play the amazing tapes for you. On the recording he begs the dispatcher to quickly send police and soldiers, too.

We'll also take you back to Haiti where barely two months since the earthquake, a second disaster could be hitting. The threat: rain.   According to the U.N., seven tent cities, housing as many as 200-thousand people, are facing dire threats right now.  Pres. Obama hinted as much today when he hosted Haiti's president at the White House. Why are Haiti's homeless still in limbo? We're keeping them honest.

We'll also continue our "Homicide in Hollenbeck" series. Tonight, see how the stop snitchin' code on the streets can potentially be a motive for murder. Anderson also talks with boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya, who grew up near Hollenbeck.

Join us for these stories and much more at 10 p.m. ET. See you then!

    In Haiti, homeless outside have to come indoors. Hotels, Restaurants, any standing building can and must be used to house the homeless

    Good for Carlos – I bet his parents are so proud of him today. That was a very level-headed brave thing to do for a second grader and it sounds like while he was doing the 911 call to get help he was trying to protect his sisters with him. Someone ought to give that boy a medal and encourage other parents to teach their children what to do and how to do it; there could be a lot of Carlos's out there.

    I've worried about the rainy season for Haiti since the earthquakes happened; I remember all the pictures of flooding from last year and years prior and how bad it was. The tent cities are not going to protect these people – its another disaster waiting to happen. I'm looking forward to hearing AC's interview with Sean Penn to see what Sean has to say about it. See you tonight!
