[Video] 12 Year Old Girl Who Shot Intruder Is Given “911 Hero of the Year” Award
You might remember the case of 12 year old Kendra St. Clair from October of last year.
The girl was home alone when Stacy Jones broke into her home.
Kendra hid in a closet in the home, holding her mother’s gun and talking to 911 dispatchers throughout the incident.
When Jones tried to break into the closet she was hiding in, Kendra fired the gun through the door.
Jones was hit in the shoulder and immediately fled the home.
Officers were able to find Jones, wounded, nearby and take him into custody.
Now, a year later, Kendra is receiving the Oklahoma 911 Hero of the Year award at the annual Oklahoma Public Safety Conference.
According to KXII,
Durant police officers have called Kendra an inspiration. Those who were on the scene that day said they are extremely proud of what she did…
…Stacy Jones was found guilty of burglary in the first degree earlier this year. A judge sentenced him to 25 years and an additional 5 years probation.
We would like to join the state of Oklahoma in recognizing the brave efforts of this young woman. She is truly a testament to how firearms can level the playing field in a self defense situation.
