Someone messing with your babies life!? Guns come out! This mom was not playing or taking any risks. A recently widowed teen mom shot and killed an intruder to protect her 3-month-old son on New Year’s Eve after asking the 911 operator for permission. Click below to read the rest of the story.


Sarah McKinley, 18, was alone with her son in their Blanchard, Okla., home about 2 p.m. Dec. 31 when two men tried to break in, the Oklahoman said. McKinley’s husband had just passed away from lung cancer on Christmas Day.

McKinley grabbed a shotgun, called 911 and begged the operator to send help.

She stayed on the line for a terrifying 21 minutes and asked the dispatcher if it was all right to shoot if the men forced their way in.

“I can’t tell you that you can do that, but you do what you have to do to protect your baby,” the dispatcher told her, according to ABC News.

The young mom fired when Justin Martin, 24, who was wielding a 12-inch knife, kicked his way through the door.

Police arrived to find Martin lying dead on the sofa McKinley had used to barricade the front door, according to Oklahoma’s News 9.

His alleged accomplice, Dustin Stewart, 29, was arrested and jailed.

“It’s not an easy decision to make, but it was either going to be him or my son,” McKinley told local TV station KOCO. “And it wasn’t going to be my son. There’s nothing more dangerous than a woman with a child.”

Police say that McKinley was justified in taking action against the intruders once they entered her home.

“The Oklahoma laws are clear on the home and the right to your home are absolute,” Blanchard Police Detective Dan Huff told News 9.

Martin had come by McKinley’s house earlier in the day, claiming he was a neighbor who wanted to say hello. McKinley turned him away.
