A teenage girl in Spokane Washington leveled the playing field when a man attempted to invade her home. How did she do it? She did it with her gun.
A 17-year-old north Spokane County girl protected herself and her home with her dad’s gun when a suspected car thief on the run from Spokane County deputies came into her house Monday morning.
The incident originally started at around 5:00 a.m. when deputies spotted a stolen car in the Wandermere area. After a pursuit, the suspect ditched the car in a field and took off on foot.
