12 year old girl uses gun to fight off home invader

Child shot through closet door to wound suspect

A young girl was home alone yesterday in Bryan County, Oklahoma when a stranger kicked in  the door of the house.

This morning, the young girl is okay and the intruder is nursing a bullet wound.

The 12-year-old first called her mom at work.

Debra St. Clair told her daughter to get the family gun, go hide in a closet and call 911.

The child did as she was told.

""What we understand right now, he was turning the doorknob when she fired through the door," said the Bryan County Undersheriff Ken Golden.

Deputies found the suspect at the end of the block, bleeding.

32-year-old Stacy Jones was treated at a hospital and is now in the Bryan County jail.
