Teen Mom Kills Intruder: Buddhism
Published January 06, 2012
BLANCHARD, Okla. – The teenage mother who shot and killed an intruder on New Year's Eve after asking a 911 dispatcher for permission told Fox News on Friday that she still somewhat in shock over the ordeal.
"None of it seems real," Sarah McKinley, 18, told Fox News' Shepard Smith.
McKinley, a recently widowed Oklahoma woman who was home alone with her 3-month-old son at the time, said she focused on every little detail and noise while she was on the phone with the 911 dispatcher as the suspect broke into her home. "It helped me to stay calm," she said.
Sarah McKinley, 18, watched her husband die of lung cancer and buried him with her three-month old baby in her arms. A week later she was victim of a home invasion. She heard someone trying to get in, called 911, and located her gun. She asked permission to shoot if the intruders broke in. When they crashed through the door, she shot and killed one. She protected her baby and herself.
