Girl, 11, shoots man attacking mother in southeast Oklahoma City | News OK.

An 11-year-old girl was called a hero by neighbors Wednesday after she used a handgun to shoot a man who was attacking her mother.

About 4 a.m. Tuesday, Oklahoma City police were called to a home at 3308 SE 89 and found Brandy Moreno, who said she was stabbed by her ex-boyfriend, Leo Henry.

Police said Henry broke into the house and began to attack Moreno until her daughter, Jayda Milsap, 11, shot Henry twice with a handgun. Henry tried to flee from the home after being shot and was found down the street, police said.

Moreno and Henry were both taken to OU Medical Center in serious condition, EMSA spokeswoman Lara O’Leary said. Hospital officials later said they could not confirm or report on the condition of either person.

Moreno’s neighbor, Carolyn Marsee, said she heard the shots fired by the girl early Wednesday.

“I think she’s a hero,” Marsee said.

Protective order

The neighbor said Henry lived in the home with Moreno, her two children and his three children until last week when Moreno asked for a protective order against Henry.

In her request for a protective order, filed Sept. 18 in Cleveland County District Court, Moreno accused Henry of mistreating three of the children and said she was afraid Henry would hurt her and the children because she reported him to police.

“(Moreno) just showed the girl how to use the gun last week so she could protect herself,” Marsee said.

Evidence from the break-in, stabbing and shooting surrounded the home Wednesday afternoon as neighbors gathered to reflect on the incident.
