BLANCHARD – An 18-year-old woman shot and killed an intruder Saturday after the man forced his way into her home and was carrying a weapon, police said.

Blanchard Police Chief Walt Thompson said Sarah Dawn McKinley was at home with her 3-month-old son when the home invasion occurred about 2 p.m. Saturday. He said Justin Shane Martin, 24, of Blanchard, entered through the front door and was shot by McKinley in the upper torso.

Officers arrived at the home at 2227 County Road 1280 and found Martin slumped over a sofa with a single gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Thompson said another man, identified as Dustin Louis Stewart, 29, of Blanchard, was about to enter the home with Martin when he heard the gunshot. Stewart ran from the scene and later surrendered to officers at the Blanchard Police Department, he said.

Stewart is currently being held in the Grady County jail on a first-degree burglary complaint.

And thus I rest half my case for the right to keep and bear arms!
The other half? Well, let's just say that Americans haven't been heavily arming themselves since January 20, 2009 to resist your usual type of criminal.

Galt - "But slaves aren't suppose to have guns, they might shoot their masters!

Since I'm against slavery, I agree with you.

Hey, I just thought of something, why aren't they charging the partner with murder?
If someone dies while you are (as a direct result of you)committing a felony, I think they can charge you with murder. Come on Grady county D.A. lock him up long time.

I was able to support this brave woman and her son on Dideo (.com). Search for Oklahoma or Sarah McKinley and support her for $5!!!

I just can't believe these turn-of-events in their lives.
