A little girl in Michigan sent home intruders running for the hills after they saw her wielding a shotgun.

“The 12-gauge shotgun is her weapon,” Lapeer County Sheriff Detective Sgt. Jason Parks said of the 11-year-old girl, MLive.com reported Monday. “She and her father are into hunting and avid sportsmen. She was familiar with that weapon.”

Police said the little girl was home alone when the intruders tried to force entry into the family’s home.

During the home invasion, the unidentified girl hid in her closet. When one of intruders opened the door, she was already pointing the weapon directly at him. He and his fellow criminals took off.

“She was able to defend herself from an intruder and be able to resolve an event even most adults would be taken aback by,” Sgt. Parks said.

The newspaper reported that suspects James Wasson, 53, and Rhonda Steward, 31, were arrested shortly afterward and arraigned Sunday on the following: home invasion, second-degree home invasion, burglary tool possession, receiving and concealing stolen property, and felony firearm charges.
