Her husband had passed away the week before from cancer and Sarah wasn’t about to let the armed robber take her son away from her too.
When she heard the break-in, she left the couch, put a bottle in her son’s mouth, and dialed 911. Listen to the shocking call she made to dispatch that likely saved her baby’s life.
And it all happened because she asked ONE question…
Mom had one question for the professionals on the other end of the phone…
“I’ve got two guns in my hand. Is it OK to shoot him if he comes in this door?” Sarah asked.
“Well, you have to do whatever you can do to protect yourself,” dispatcher Diane Graham told her. “I can’t tell you that you can do that, but you do what you have to do to protect your baby.”
At this point, the maniac at the door kicked down the door and charged Sarah with a knife.
The young 18-year-old mother did not hesitate. She shot and killed the 24-year-old Justin Shane Martin with her 12-gauge shotgun.
“You have to make a choice, you or him. I chose my son over him,” Sarah told KWTV.
Because she acted in self-defense, she was not charged.
