BRYAN COUNTY, Okla. (CBS Houston) — Police say a 12-year-old Oklahoma girl shot a home intruder while hiding in a closet.

According to KTEN-TV, Bryan County authorities say Kendra St. Clair was home alone when 32-year-old Stacey Jones broke into the house.

She called her mom Debra St. Clair after Jones started pounding on the door, eventually kicking it in.

“She said, ‘Mom, I think he’s going to the back door,’ and I said, ‘You go get the gun and you get in my closet right now and call 911,'” Debra St.Clair told KTEN.

Kendra St. Clair then shot Jones in the shoulder when he was about to enter the bedroom she was hiding in.

“I was sitting in the closet really scared, holding the gun, not knowing what was going to happen,” the young girl told KTEN. “When he turned the door handle I shot towards him with my mom’s gun and it hit him in the arm.”

Jones immediately ran out of the house but was apprehended not far from the St. Clair residence.

“He was sitting down. The policemen had him apprehended at the end of the block,” Debra St. Clair told KWTV. “All I saw was some blood coming down his back.”

Jones was taken to Bryan County Jail after being released from the hospital. He is being charged with first-degree burglary.
