Teen mom who shot and killed intruder will not be charged
"A teenage mother in Oklahoma who asked a 911 operator for permission to shoot an intruder, before killing him with a 12-gauge shotgun blast, will not be charged.
Sarah McKinley, 18, clutched her infant with one hand and a shotgun in the other as she hid in her mobile home on New Year's Eve.
Her husband had died from lung cancer on Christmas Day. Police say two men targeted her home because they believed she would have her husband's prescription medication.
When McKinley heard someone trying to break into her home, she called 911 and asked: "Is it OK to shoot him if he comes in this door?"
In an audio tape released to media, the dispatcher can be heard responding: "Well, you have to do whatever you can to protect yourself. I can't tell you that you can do that, but you have to do what you have to do to protect your baby."
She opened fire and killed 24-year-old Justin Martin, who was armed with a knife."
"First, she pushed a couch in front of the front door.
Then, she grabbed her son and 'walked over and got the 12-gauge, went in the bedroom and got the pistol and put the bottle in his mouth and then I called 911,'
.....The 911 conversation lasted for 21 minutes. Then the door gave in.
'I waited till he got in the door. They said I couldn't shoot him until he was inside the house. So I waited until he got in the door and then I shot him,' McKinley told KFOR. "
Good for her! I would have done the same exact thing. They're breaking into my home, armed and I'm alone with my child? Hell yeah I'll do whatever it takes to protect her!
