A hero mom who saved the life of her husband and daughter used an AR-15 to gun down one of two home intruders who were also armed. The sad thing is that another very similar home invasion (see below) ended with the death of an unarmed woman in Pennsylvania. The difference in the cases is one woman was armed, and the other wasn’t.
Details of this case from Hillsborough County, Florida show that the legally-owned AR-15 saved this family:
Two home intruders entered a Florida home and immediately got violent with the woman’s husband by pistol-whipping him. They also grabbed the 11-year-old daughter as they entered the home.
Jeremy King, told Bay News 9, “As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter.”
“I’m telling them, ‘I have nothing for you…And they’re like, ‘Give me everything you got.’ It became real violent, real fast.”
The intruder shot at the wife who is eight months pregnant. She went to the back of the house and retrieved an AR-15.
“When he 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. My wife evened the playing field and kept them from killing me.”
In another recent home invasion, the woman in the house wasn’t armed and didn’t survive the beating she got:
WPXI reports Allegheny County police are investigating the death Saturday of a Penn Hills woman who was badly beaten during a home invasion Wednesday.
According to police, two men wearing ski masks had entered the Cimarron Drive home of Tiffany Williams, 46, about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday in search of money.
Witnesses reported seeing two men arguing at or near the Cimarron Drive residence and hearing gunshots. Arriving on the scene, police found a badly beaten Ms. Williams who was then transported to Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville where she died Saturday.
