    Found a story from last year...

    Ran a thread search and came up with zilch so here it is:

    Shotgun preteen vs. illegal alien Home Invaders Butte, Montana
    November 5, 2006

    Two illegal aliens, 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 crooks 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 d oor 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 and genitals.
    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, w as not so lucky. He died from stab wounds to the chest.

    I looked up the story on Snopes and here's what I found.

    http://www.snopes.com/politics/crime/homeinvasion.asp

    They say it is false. However, I have noticed that Snopes tends to be a bit left wing sometimes and some of their editorial comment seems to have been written by democrats or other liberal types, so take it for what it's worth.

    Good story even if not exactly accurate.

    Yep bogus.

    I recall this from last year and Snopes denied it within a week.
    As well I 'd then run a news source search against all three names as inidcated in the 'story' (that had not featured a byline heading or news source) and all fingers then pointed back to a single blog source which itself had not posted it's source.
    Now news references otherwise at a national, state, nor local base that I'd found toward this again last year.

    Things might have changed, but I doubt it.
    BTW I'm a liberal democrat (actually a centrist) but that fact didn't have any bearing then or now on the fact that the story was sourceless and by all appearances impossible to establish as truthful in part or whole.
    FWIW though other stories of successful home defense with shotguns albeit by older aged teens have been in the real and confirmed news in the same time frame.
