11-year-old girl defends home with shotgun in Montana

25 posts in this topic

Shooting in Butte, Montana

Shotgun pre-teen vs. Home Invaders :

Two men, Ralphel Resindez, 23, and Enrico

Garza, 26, probably believed they would easily

overpower home-alone 11 year old Patricia Harrington

after her father had left their two-story home.

It seems the two men never learned two things:

they were in Montana, and Patricia had been a clay

shooting champion since she was nine.

Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men

broke through the front door of the house. She

quickly ran to her father's room and grabbed his 12

gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.

Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor

only to be the first to catch a near point blank blast

of buckshot from the 11-year-old's knee crouch aim.

He suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen ...

When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a

blast to the left shoulder and staggered out into the

street where he bled to death before medical help could arrive.

It was found out later that Resindez was armed with a

stolen 45 caliber handgun he took from another home

invasion robbery. That victim, 50-year-old David Burien,

was not so lucky. He died from stab wounds to the chest.

Ever wonder why good stuff never makes NBC, CBS, PBS,

MSNBC, CNN, or ABC news........

An 11 year old girl, properly trained, defended her home,

and herself......against two men .......

and she won; she is still alive.

Now that is Gun Control !

Makes a guy want to move to Montana huh?

Good for her. Hopefully she is able to keep a straight mind and realize that she did exactly what she needed to do and not blame herself the rest of her life for killing two people.

Wonder why I haven't seen this anywhere else???

**edit**

Oh I know why, because it's made up.

Just giving you a hard time.......this area is good for some ribbin, sorry to start you off on a bad note.

What I meant was, much like LEP7MM said, I would rather find my son/daughter at home with 2 dead BAD guys then vice versa.

Again, sorry for the troll comment...........welcome to FM

I think this was just some ribbing. Don't take too much offense, most of us are good guys on here. Unfortunattly, I'm not one grin. I agree with others that if this were true, I would rather find my daughter shooting the bad guys than visa versa. I'm glad the story isn't true though because that would have to be hard on any 11 year old child. I know it would be hard on me at my age.

Of course, we would all rather have 2 dead scumbags then a dead 11 year old girl. But hoping that a horrific story like this be true, so that people can feel better about gun control issues, is sick.

I guess I took your post the wrong way. I don't think anyone would really like to see it happen.

Neighbor Rhea Lee knew Tommy Steele for years.

She says he used to work at the local grocery store.

He also used to volunteer with the fire department.

Lee is devastated by the news.

"It's just awful. I can't believe he'd do such a thing." says Lee.

The bodies were discovered Monday afternoon by Steele's older son.

One neighbor tells Action News the children's mother left them with their father several years ago.

In the aftermath, everyone is trying to come to grips with the deaths.

"We see a lot of partying and things going on like that. But as far as a shooting, yeah murder, we've never seen anything like that." says Trunk.

The Susquehanna County's Coroner's Office says autopsies show both died from single gunshot wounds to the head.

In Springville, Julianne Sweeney, WBNG-TV, Action News.
