A Florida family is alive today, thanks to an eight-months pregnant mom who confronted a pair of armed assailants with an AR-15.
The gun-wielding matriarch saved her husband and young daughter after the intruders pistol-whipped her husband and grabbed the couple’s 11-year-old daughter.
The commotion got the attention of the woman who walked into the living room and promptly found herself dodging a bullet.
Per Fox News:
Jeremy King was at his home in Lithia, 25 miles southeast of Tampa, at 9 p.m. Wednesday night when two armed men, wearing masks and hoods, broke inside.
The woman, who was not identified, reportedly retreated and grabbed an AR-15 that was legally inside their house, returning to the room and shooting the intruders, hitting one of them.
“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King said of his wife. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”
The man was later found dead in the ditch, according to the news outlet. The other burglar fled when his friend was shot.
Authorities have not disclosed the identity of either assailant. Anyone with information on the surviving burglar’s whereabouts is urged to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at 813-247-8200.
