Woman Kills Intruder after Getting Go Ahead from 911 Operator

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

A teen mom from Oklahoma shot and killed a home invader on New Year’s Eve after an operator from 911 told her she could defend herself and her infant son with force. Eighteen year old Sarah McKinley shot and killed Justin Martin with one gunshot wound when he forced his way into her home in Blanchard. He lunged at her with a hunting knife.

The home invasion occurred roughly one week after the woman’s husband died from cancer. One the day of her husband’s funeral, Martin supposedly knocked on McKinkley’s door, saying he was a neighbor who just wanted to say hello. McKinley did not open the door for him.

On December 31, 2011, Martin returned to the home with an accomplice, forcing their way into the home. McKinley called 911 when she heard the two men attempting to break into the house. McKinley, while on the phone with 911, barricaded herself in a bedroom with a 12-gauge shotgun and a pistol. She put a bottle in the mouth of her three-month-old son to keep him quiet.

“I’ve got two guns in my hand — Is it okay to shoot him if he comes in this door?” McKinley asked the 911 operator.

“I can’t tell you that you can do that, but you do what you have to do to protect your baby,” the dispatcher said when McKinley asked for a second time. The conversation with the 911 operator lasted 21 minutes as the two men forced their way into the home.

Martin was able to kick in the door and charge at McKinley with a knife as she fired a shot at him, before he could injure her or the baby. Martin was found slumped over a couch McKinley used to barricade the door. He was pronounced dead at the scene and also said that the use of force by McKinley was justified. Dustin Stewart, Martin’s accomplice, fled the scene at the sound of the gunshot but later turned himself into police. Stewart has been charged with burglary and murder. Stewart was charged with murder because a person was killed while a felony was being committed.

    If President Obama had his way, this woman would most likely be raped and dead.

    Oct 27, 2008 – Obama: “I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.”

    This is unbelievable. This woman is amazing. She has had to endure so much in her short life. Most adults i know have not been through as much. What a brave and smart young woman. Never underestimate the power of a mothers love. God Bless her and her child.

    We ALL need to send Sarah McKinley money for more ammo!

    We NEED ALL states to permit unfettered Second Amendment Rights to carry guns, everywhere, just like the criminals
    all do, when they ignore the 20,000 laws which make the
    sheeple such easy targets!

    I REFUSE to attend ANY theater, sports arena, college, or
    public event, where guns are “prohibited”. Might as well
    post a sign for criminals, “Guns Prohibited” and “EASY TARGETS, unarmed victims > HERE >”!

    I am voting to eliminate all the stupid 20,000 laws that
    restrict our Rights as the ONLY one needed is the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution!

    What totally surprised me also was that the CRIMINAL who
    lived, charged with 1st Degree Murder, is out on bail!!!

    Sarah needs to keep her loaded guns by her bed!!!

    Yeah if Obama had his way she might have been raped and killed but 22 kids might be alive.
