The Armed Citizen® October 13, 2017

In Spokane, Wash., a 17-year-old girl was forced to defend herself from a robbery suspect who picked the wrong home to break into. Local news stations reported on the morning news that a perimeter had been set in the vicinity of the girl’s home to catch the escapee, who led police on a car chase before getting away on foot. The girl called her father to ask if she could use one of his guns just in case of emergency. Receiving permission, the girl retrieved the gun, placed it under her pillow and went back to sleep. Later in the morning, the girl awoke to the sounds of someone moving about the house. The girl grabbed the gun and hid behind her vanity, only to have the suspect enter her room. She pointed the gun at the man, who took off running at the sight of the firearm. The man stole her boyfriend’s ATV from the property to make his escape. The girl later confirmed the robbery suspect was the same man who had broken into her home. (KHQ6, Spokane, WA, 7/17/17)
