12-Year Old Blasts Home Invader
Oklahoma of course. You wouldn't catch this happening in Illinois:
- Authorities say a 12-year-old girl shot and wounded a man who kicked in the back door of her home. A television station reports the incident happened Wednesday in Bryan County. The girl told police that a stranger rang the doorbell, then went around to the back door and kicked it in.
Police say the girl called her mother, who told her to get the family's gun, hide in a closet and call 911. Authorities say the man came into the room where she was hiding and tried to open the closet door.
Bryan County Undersheriff Ken Golden says the girl opened fire when the man turned the doorknob.
She only wounded the home invader, but still a deserving nomination for NRA Citizen of the Year there, if there is such an award.
