Home Alone Shooter Never Fired Gun Before, Mother “So Thankful to God that He was Keeping an Eye out for Her”

A 12-year-old girl said she never had fired a gun before she took aim at an intruder while home alone this week.

“I had to do what I had to do,” Kendra St. Clair said Friday. “I was scared out of my mind.”

Kendra used her mother’s handgun to shoot the intruder Wednesday while she was home on fall break. Her mother had shown her how to shoot it, she said.

“Normally I do not leave my kids at home alone,” Debra St. Clair said. “But being a single mother of two with a full-time job, I had to that day”…

Kendra said even though she was terrified, “I kept my head on straight.”

Stacey Adam Jones, 32, was booked into the Bryan County jail Thursday. Bail was set at $250,000 at Jones’ arraignment hearing Friday afternoon, assistant Bryan County District Attorney Tim Webster said. His next court appearance will be a preliminary hearing conference in December.

    Good for mom teaching her daughter how to shoot a gun….Mom should not have been arrested….give her a medal instead……Kendra kept her head and didn’t panic….I call that good parenting.

    I learned to handle guns at an early age, maybe 9 or 10. My kids all shoot and two grandsons in Military are expert shooters. My great granddaughter will be learning to shoot and also taking karate.
