BLANCHARD, Oklahoma — A young mother in Oklahoma killed a man trying to break into her home by giving him a new hole with the aid of a shotgun.
For 20 minutes, 18-year-old Sarah McKinley says she was alone with her 3-month-old baby while two men repeatedly attempted to get inside her home.
“He was from door to door trying to bust in,” said McKinley. “I don’t know what he had in his hand besides the knife. I believe he actually had a hammer in his hand at some point because he was hitting that back door with it.”
In an attempt to stop them from coming inside, she had armed herself with a shotgun, pushed a couch against the back door and called 911 who told her she could use the shotgun if the men entered the house. When 24-year old Justin Shane Martin got the back door open and made his way in the home armed with a knife, that’s exactly what McKinley did, killing Martin with a shot to the upper torso.
His accomplice, 29-year old Dustin Louis Stewart, fled the scene and called his parents who turned him over to police.
If you read through the comments attached to the article I linked to, you’ll see a mix of people congratulating Sarah as well as friends of Justin saying this woman had no right to shoot him as he entered her home armed with a knife.
But what I found more interesting is the indication that these two men had been terrorizing this woman in the weeks leading up to this incident, and may have even poisoned her dogs. If anyone knows the dirt, please indulge.Tags: Crime, Home Invasion, Justin Martin, Oklahoma, Sarah McKinley, Shooting, shotgun
