Armed With Her Dad’s Gun, This 17-Year-Old Girl Fended Off A Wanted Man Who Broke Into Her Home
By Bre Payton, The Federalist
A 17-year-old girl defended herself with her dad’s gun from a wanted car thief who broke into her home while she slept Monday morning.
When Kimber Wood of Spokane County, Washington awoke, it was to the sound of someone breaking into her home. Luckily, her parents had warned her there was a suspected car thief on the loose in their area, so she had slept with her dad’s gun under her pillow, KHQ reports.
Police say they initially saw a stolen car early Monday morning, but that the suspect evaded authorities and fled on foot. KHQ reported the incident on “The Wake Up Show,” which Kimber’s parents saw before they left for work.
