Pregnant Florida Mum Shoots Home Intruder To Death With An AR-15
This pregnant woman is being praised for saving her family.
Last week, on October 30, at 9 PM, two masked and armed men entered the King family's home in Lithia, Florida. They used their guns to pistol-whip Jeremy King and violently grabbed their 11-year daughter.
They demanded the man give them everything he's got, even though he said he had nothing. The whole situation became violent fast, with the two thieves pistol-whipping him and kicking him repeatedly in the head.
His eight months pregnant wife was in the bedroom when she heard the noise and looked out to see what was going on. She grabbed the AR-15 from inside the room and managed to kill one of the intruders.
"When [the intruder] came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him. He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing."
Police found his body in a ditch nearby, but the second suspect is still on the loose.
King took a severe beating, suffering a fractured eye socket, fractured sinus cavity, and a concussion. He received three staples in his head and 20 stitches.
He says he wouldn't be alive if it weren't for his wife's quick-thinking actions. '[Those] guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it. [My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me'.
The sheriff's office confirmed that the firearm was in the home legally.
