N.C. Teen Uses Dad’s Rifle To Thwart Home Intruders

posted on July 27, 2016

A 13-year-old North Carolina girl used her father’s rifle to protect herself and her little sister, who were home alone, from two home intruders last Thursday.

According to local media reports, police said two sisters, ages 12 and 13, were inside the home when they heard knocking at the front door. When they looked out and saw three men they didn’t know, the older sister grabbed her dad’s rifle.

The suspects then broke through the back door, only to find the girl aiming the rifle their way. They immediately fled the scene. “I am in awe of that young lady,” neighbor Jackie Garrison told WMFY. “To have had that kind of thoughtfulness going on in a time of crisis in her head to where that’s what she did, instead of running and hiding. She probably stopped something major from going on.”
