Heavily Pregnant Woman Takes Out Home Intruders With AR-15

A heavily pregnant Florida woman used an AR-15 to kill a home intruder when her home was invaded by two masked men. The two men pistol-whipped her husband and grabbed their daughter violently.

Jeremy King, 34, of Lithia, Florida, was at home with his 31-year-old wife when the two men stormed into their home and pointed a gun at them and demanded money.

The two suspects immediately grabbed their 11-year-old daughter as King was explaining they had nothing worth robbing. King told Bay News 9 that he was pistol-whipped by one of the men at that point while the other one kicked him in the head.

King was bruised so badly you could tell he was on the receiving end of a very bad beating.

More on the story from Bay News 9:

“I’ve got a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity, a concussion, 20 stitches and three staples in my head,” said King, outside his home on Old Welcome Road in Lithia. “I took a severe beating.”

King said he was inside his home Wednesday when two masked men armed with guns barged in around 9:00pm. He said he doesn't know who they are, never met them and has no idea why he was targeted.  Both men pointed guns at King while demanding money. 

“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.”

Deputies later found a man dead in a nearby ditch. The other gunman ran off after that fatal shot was fired. 

"Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it,” King said. “(My wife) evened the playing field and kept them from killing me."

What an incredible story. Anyone have any questions about whether or not an AR-15 can be used for more than crime?
