On Monday, in Spokane County, Washington, a 17-year-old girl called her father and asked permission to grab a gun before using the firearm to fend off a robbery suspect.
It all started when a police chase ended with a stolen car around Wandermere at 5 a.m.
Kimber Woods was home alone when police alerted locals that the suspect was on the loose. With permission from her father, Woods took one of his handguns and kept it close.
A few hours after the alert, she heard the sounds of someone inside her house.
The suspect entered the house and walked right up to her. Woods pointed the gun at him and said, “Who are you? Get the (expletive) out of my house!”
The startled man immediately took off running. Woods said he stole her boyfriend’s car to escape.
Deputies arrived on the scene not long after the encounter, showed her a picture of the man they were chasing, and Woods positively identified him as the suspect who had been in her home.
