By Steven Powell. A man who broke into a home [in southern Oklahoma this week], when he was shot by a 12-year-old girl who was in the home alone.
Debra St. Clair, the girl’s mother, said her daughter called her at work to say an unknown man was ringing the doorbell. When the girl didn’t answer, the man went around to the back and kicked in the back door.
She told her daughter to grab the family gun, barricade herself in the closet and call 911.
“I drove home at a really fast pace to try to get to her, and when I got here the police were already here. And they had the suspect,” she said.
St. Clair’s daughter had hid in the closet with a .40 Glock.
But Undersheriff Ken Golden said the intruder kept making his way through the house.
“And what we understand right now, he was turning the doorknob when she fired through the door,” he said. Read more from this story HERE.
