Oklahoma girl, 12, shoot suspected burglar

Authorities say a 12-year-old girl shot and wounded a man who kicked in the back door of her home.

Oklahoma City television station KWTV reports the incident happened Wednesday in Bryan County. The girl told police that a stranger rang the doorbell, then went around to the back door and kicked it in.

Police say the girl called her mother, who told her to get the family's gun, hide in a closet and call 911. Authorities say the man came into the room where she was hiding and tried to open the closet door.

Bryan County Undersheriff Ken Golden says the girl opened fire when the man turned the doorknob.

Police say the suspect was taken to a hospital but has since been extradited to the Bryan County jail.
