    Officers respond to shooting
    By PHILIP AARON, Hope Star Writer

    A teenage girl shot a 48-year-old man who allegedly was attacking her at her home Tuesday morning, July 19, sending him to a Texarkana hospital.

    The incident took place on County Road13, just north of McNab. According to the Hempstead County Sheriff's Office, Ben Haywood, 48, the teen told them Haywood began to hit her and tried to undress her, pulling her shirt off.

    The girl got away from Haywood, according to the HCSO, and hid in a closet at the rear of the home. She was found by Haywood and once again he began to beat the girl. After a period of confrontation, the girl was able to grab a 9mm rifle from a gun rack that was near her and shot the alleged attacker -- hitting him in the left leg. She then fled to search for help.

    Sheriff deputies arrived on the scene along with Pafford Ambulance Service, questioned the juvenile and released her to her parents. She suffered several scratches and bruises, according to deputies.

    Haywood was moved by the Pafford EMS to an area were he was then air lifted to St. Michael Hospital in Texarkana.

    An investigation is ongoing in the case at this time, according to the HCSO.

    Well done, young lady, aim a little higher next time, but well done. This chomo will have a bad time of it in prison when his fellow chesters find out a little girl shot him....if he was going in my prison, I'd make sure they knew about it....

    Any word if the parents are going to be charged for allowing a minor access to a firearm?

    She needs training but possesses very good innate capacity. Kudos.

    In Arkansas, "He needed killin" is a valid defense. They won't charge her.

    Brava for that young lady! I'm glad she learned how to operate a firearm and was able to defend herself. :)

    Frankly, I think they should have told him to walk if he wanted medical treatment.

    Since guns cause crime it is obvious that SHE is the criminal and should be prosecuted. He, on the other hand, should be put in charge of a wayward girl's center!! (Boy, the cheese really slipped off my cracker today!)
