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."
As the intruder moved closer into the room and made his way toward the closet she fired the gun hitting 32-year old Stacey Jones in the shoulder. He immediately ran out of the home.
Police later found Jones several blocks away and arrested him.
"When I had the gun, I didn't think I was actually going to have to shoot somebody," the 6th grader said. "I think it's going to change me a whole lot, knowing that I can hold my head up high and nothing can hurt me anymore."
Debra is proud of her daughter’s courage.
"I think that she did something that most grown-ups wouldn't be able to do in a frightening situation. I think she handled herself amazingly," her mother said.
Jones was treated for his injuries at a local hospital and is held on $250,000 bail.
