BRYAN COUNTY, OK–A day off for fall break was anything but relaxing for a 12-year old Bryan County girl, when an intruder broke into her home on Michael Avenue.
Deputies say, the girl was home alone when a man she’d never seen before, rang the front doorbell. They say when no one answered the door, the man went around to the back of the house and kicked a door open. That’s when authorities say, the girl grabbed a gun and hid in a bathroom closet.
“He had worked his way all the way through the house and into the bathroom. And from what we understand, he was turning the doorknob when she fired through the door.” Says Bryan County Under sheriff, Ken Golden.
Just like the guy HUNTING for the Mom and the two 9 year old twins, this guy was HUNTING for the girl. Nice that a case a lead poisoning ensued.
After the man was shot, The 12- year old ran out of the closet and called for help.
Authorities say she kept her cool despite the potential danger. “She was very brave, she stayed on the phone with the dispatcher the whole time – talked all the way through it and was still on the phone with dispatch when we got into the house.” Says Golden.
Deputies tell KTEN, the man was taken by helicopter to a hospital in Plano, Texas and he’s expected to survive.
Under sheriff Ken Golden says the girl is a hero and that under the circumstances, she did everything right to protect herself .”She did everything she was supposed to do and as a last resort, she did what she had to do to protect herself.“
Another case that could have ended up as “No gun? No girl“.
