17-Year-Old Girl From Spokane Pulls Gun on Unwanted Intruder – VIDEO

Kimber Wood is a 17-year-old girl from Spokane. Her family saw a report of a car thief in her area and told her to get the pistol ready. She sure did!

“I fired a shot at him, cause I didn’t want him coming back,” was how the 17-year-old girl described the action. The man was on the run from the law and chose the wrong target to go after next.

Per KHQ:

It’s an unbelievable story that started as a pursuit with Spokane County Sheriff’s deputies. They made a traffic stop in North Spokane County, but they driver they were stopping took off. Deputies spent hours looking for him, and we reported that on the Wake Up Show Monday morning. It turns out Wood’s boyfriend was watching our newscast.

He called her to say there may be a bad guy in her neighborhood.

“I was laying in bed watching TV and my boyfriend called my parents. They warned me.”

So she asked her dad for a gun, put it under her pillow and went back to sleep. Until she heard the screen door open.

“I heard it close and that just doesn’t happen. I knew something was wrong,” Wood said.

Her gut said grab the gun. So she did, and she waited.

“I heard footsteps and he went upstairs,” she said.

She called her dad, who taught her everything she knows about guns, and he stayed with her on the phone as the footsteps got closer to her room. 

“I was laying right there on the bed and he came in, and that’s when I crawled out, got the gun from my pillow…”

That’s when the unthinkable happened.

“He popped in and I said, ‘Who the [expletive] are you?’” Wood said. “His head was right there and I had the gun straight in his face and he ran.”

Wood followed him out through the same screen door he came in and watched down the barrel of her gun.

“I knew I wanted to be as close to him as I could, and your hands are shaking, but you know you have to have steady aim.”

Then she pulled the trigger. She didn’t aim to hit him, she aimed to scare him away.

“I fired a shot at him because I didn’t want him back,” she said.

What an incredible story of bravery from a young lady. Her parents and the deputies are very proud of the action she took in the face of danger.

Unfortunately, the suspect is still on the run. He was able to get away with an ATV that the family owns.
