A teen girl from Oklahoma had to defend herself and her home this past Wednesday when an intruder burst into her home along the state’s border with Texas. The girl, Kendra, was home alone when the suspect rang the doorbell. She did not answer the door, causing the suspect to go to the back of the house and kick in the back door.

The girl called her mother, Debra St. Clair, who told the girl to grab the gun in the house, hide in a closet and call 911. St. Clair then stopped what she was doing and raced to get home as quickly as possible to her daughter.


According to Ken Golden, the Bryan County Under Sheriff, “He had worked his way all the way through the house and into the bathroom. And from what we understand, he was turning the doorknob when she fired through the door.”

The suspect has been identified as Stacy Jones, from Texarkana. Jones was flown to a hospital in Plano, Texas and is expected to survive.

“She did everything she was supposed to do and as a last resort, she did what she had to do to protect herself,” Golden said. No charges have been filed yet in the case.

St. Clair said, “I drove home at a really fast pace to try to get to her, and when I got here the police were already here. And they had the suspect.”

The girl told police that Jones entered the room where she was hiding and started to open the door to the closet. This is when the girl had to decided what to do to save her life, so she opened fire on the intruder.

The 911 tape tells the horror that Kendra dealt with during the ordeal.

Kendra: “I’m at my house. I’m in my closet. And I ran away from (inaudible) someone’s trying to get into my house and I do not know who they are.” Dispatcher: “Ok I have a deputy en route, I want you to stay on the phone with me. Ok?” Kendra: “Ok. Please. I think they are in the house.”

Kendra: “Please help me. Please.” Dispatcher: “Alright, alright. I understand. Do you still have your mom’s gun there?” Kendra: “Yes I do. I have it in my hand.”

After Jones was hit with the gunshot he was able to escape the house and responding officers but he was found not too far from the home.

“He was sitting down, the policemen had him apprehended at the end of the block. All I saw was some blood coming down his back. I’m not exactly sure where his injury was, but I saw some blood there,” St. Clair said.

On Thursday, Jones was released from the hospital and sent to the Bryan County Jail.
