14-Year-Old Girl Opens Fire On Home Invaders To Protect Her Sisters

A 14-year-old Kentucky girl fired a 9mm handgun at two suspects who were trying to force their way into her home.

Blaine, KY – A 14-year-old girl successfully defended herself and her sisters by shooting at an intruder who was attempting to break into their home.

The incident occurred on Aug 4, while the teens’ father was at work and their mother was at the store, WSAZ reported.

As the three girls were alone inside the home, a white sedan pulled up outside.

One occupant got out of the car, and repeatedly attempted to kick down the doors of the house to get inside.

The girls immediately called police.

Meanwhile, one of the men made his way into the backyard armed with a shovel, and prepared to bust out a window.

Just then, he and the driver of the sedan began arguing, WSAZ reported.

The youngest of the three girls used seized the opportunity to retrieve and load a 9mm handgun that was inside the residence.

She then fired the weapon towards them, breaking up the argument and sending both suspects fleeing.

“She peeked her head out the door [and] fired a shot in their direction,” Lawrence County Constable Daniel Castle told WSAZ. “I think she did take some necessary steps to protect herself, although she may have…could have done it a little bit better, considering that she’s 14 years old, she did a good job.”

The suspects fled the scene just prior to Constable Castle and Lawrence County Sheriff’s Deputy Cory Cook’s arrival.

Despite hours of searching, investigators were unable to locate them.

“I encourage everyone that can legally carry a firearm, to carry a firearm to protect themselves and their families just in case the need arises,” Constable Castle told WSAZ.

Just goes to show how in the right hands, a gun is just a tool. Your mind and your hands will always be your best weapons but education and training are key. Glad the girls were unharmed. Maybe those idiots will think twice next time.

Had the left gotten its way year ago, We would be reading of THREE DEAD GIRLS and maybe raped as well. Good shooting young lady. Now, think how LONG it took the Sheriff to get there,,and in ONE minute you can break in, kill some people and be on your way OUT.

Young lady gets to live her life knowing she saved herself and her sisters, now that's a hero. As far as Constable Castle saying "she could have done a little better", well he is an idiot apparently.

@Hi_estComnDenomn, I'm curious … do you even care that a little girl was a hero and saved her sisters from some POS bad guys? Or do you only care about your agenda and trying to be smarter than everyone else? I mean, I know you hate the police, but this article isn't about the police. You can't be happy that 3 little girls weren't possibly raped and murdered and buried in a ditch? Just curious.

Great job to the girl and her parents for teaching their kids how to protect themselves. Sounds like these kids were taught gun safety and proper use.

Shame on the parents. They should teach their kids to be better shots. Great story!

Sounds like she may well have committed a crime. If people stop actively trying to break in (assuming that is really what they were doing) and have left the property then the resident no longer has the privilege of shooting them. I doubt she will be prosecuted, but it would be an interesting legal case.

Stricter gun control law should require that children not have access to guns without adult supervision.

Children tend to use them incorrectly (which strongly seems to be what happened here).

This is why we teach kids to use and respect guns. They are an effective tool. Notice all it took was one warning shot for these coward "men" to run away.

Great presence of mind and cool head in a 14yr old. I'm betting her parents are EXTREMELY proud of her!

Whenever minutes count! She was evidently taught how to charge a gun, where the safety is and fire it! Better to have than not! Kudos for protecting yourself and your sisters!
