Wondering if anyone knows this movie title...

This is going to be kind of obscure, but I saw this made-for-TV movie of the week when I was a kid, either late '80s, early '90s, based on an actual event where a boy shot and killed an intruder that broke into his family's home. The movie mostly followed the events afterwards and the emotional trauma it caused him.

I think this was on network TV like ABC or NBC, not Lifetime.

Does anyone know the title of this movie or have an idea where I could look further? It's actually been nagging at me for a few years and I don't really care about the movie, but I need to know!

Actually, I think I just found it. "Armed and Innocent." The synopsis sounds like this movie.

Sounds like that Sam Mendes movie where Tom Hanks plays a mobster and tries to keep his son safe.

Yeah, sorry. One of those things where you look and look and find nothing, then when you make the post, you find the answer. I would've just deleted the thread if I had the option.
