She was an 18-year-old mother with one focus – protect her baby. When she heard the men attempting to break in, she picked up the phone.
Ever wonder what a 911 call like that would sound like? This is it:
McKinley said she asked the dispatcher, “I’ve got two guns in my hand — is it OK to shoot him if he comes in this door? I’m here by myself with my infant baby, can I please get a dispatcher out here immediately?”
“I can’t tell you that you can do that but you do what you have to do to protect your baby,” the dispatcher said.
The 911 conversation lasted for 21 minutes. Then the door gave in.
“I waited till he got in the door. They said I couldn’t shoot him until he was inside the house. So I waited until he got in the door and then I shot him,” McKinley told KFOR.
And the rest is history…
