A heroic pregnant wife defended her husband and 11 year old daughter by killing an armed intruder with an AR-15 she owns legally.
Democrats have advocated banning AR-15 style “assault weapons” with some candidates like Beto and Kamala Harris calling for a mandatory government buyback.
Husband Jeremy King told BayNews:
“They came in heavily hooded and masked. As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter,” he said.
“I’m telling them, ‘I have nothing for you,’” King explained. “(A)nd they’re like, ‘Give me everything you got.’ It became real violent, real fast.”
King said one of the men started pistol-whipping him while another kicked him repeatedly in the head. His wife, who is eight months pregnant, was in the back bedroom and peeked out to see what was going on.
King said one of the men shot at her. She retreated, grabbed an AR-15 and returned fire.
“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King said. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”
ABC reports a Florida woman defended her husband and child when she shot and killed an armed suspect who broke into her home.
Officers in Hillsborough County responded to a 911 call on Oct. 30 reporting a home invasion in progress in Lithia, about 25 miles from Tampa.
Investigators arrived on scene and found a male suspect dead in a ditch outside the home on the side of the road.
The preliminary investigation showed that two unknown males, who were wearing masks, had broken into the home and made demands, police said.
The male victim, later identified as Jeremy King, told Bay 9 News that the suspects pointed guns at him, demanded money and threatened him.
King was pistol-whipped and beaten when he refused, police said. He was later transported to the hospital following the incident.
“I’ve got a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity, a concussion, 20 stitches and three staples in my head,” King told the station. “I took a severe beating.”
The couple’s young daughter, who King said is 11 years old, was also inside the home at the time of the attack.
