In Florida, a woman in her eighth month of pregnancy saved her husband and teenage daughter from two strangers who had entered their home. The woman succeeded thanks to an AR-15 rifle with which she struck one of the two men.
Jeremy King was at his home in Lithia, a city near Tampa, when two armed men raided.
“As soon as they had their back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter,” King told Bay News 9. “I’m telling them, ‘I have nothing for you, ‘and they’re like,’ Give me everything you got. “It became real violent, real fast.”
A violent struggle began that caught the attention of his wife, who took the legally held weapon at home and shot one of the two men.
“When he came to the back door in his 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”. The injured man was later found dead, but his accomplice managed to escape.
“Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it. [My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me”.
At the moment we do not know the identity of the two attackers, according to the statements made at the time.
