A shocking home invasion report emerging out of SeaTac, Washington, has shaken the local community after two thugs broke into a family’s home through a window where toddlers were sleeping at the time. Now, the story has gone viral after the angry father heard the thugs breaking in and made them pay.
According to local news source KOMO, the incident took place at approximately 11 a.m. on Thursday, September 14, 2017. Police said that the 35-year-old homeowner heard a knock at his door late that morning. Moments later, he heard a suspicious noise coming from his back bedroom where his 2 toddlers were sleeping. This is when the homeowner came face to face with one of the thugs who had already made his way inside the home.
The homeowner reportedly grabbed his gun and fired several shots at the two thugs, killing one of them. The dead intruder has not yet been identified by police. The second suspect ran from the scene of the crime and is still being hunted by police.
Mona Shade, the homeowner’s mother who was interviewed by KIRO news, said, “Oh my God, I mean… I ache for the person. But then my heart goes out to my son because this is something he has to live with for the rest of his life. But I’m glad he was able to protect him and my grandkids.”
K-9 officers reportedly searched for the second suspect on foot, but the man is still at large. Police said they do not know if either of the intruders was armed during the home invasion. They believe the house was primarily targeted for a burglary.
Sgt. Cindi West, a spokeswoman for King County Sheriff’s Office, said it will be up to the district attorney to decide if the homeowner will face charges. “The person absolutely has the right to protect themselves and their family on their own property. Again, it has to be reasonable and they have to feel their life or somebody else’s was threatened with serious bodily harm,” she explained.
Keep in mind, this man shot a burglar to death in self-defense to protect his toddlers, but it was in the state of Washington. That being said, the progressive idiots who run that state and the mainstream media won’t waste any time in making this homeowner look like the bad guy. The dead thug’s family will show up on the news and plaster his baby pictures all over social media to show what an innocent angel he was. We know the truth. The moment he decided to invade an innocent family’s home, he got exactly what he deserved.
The importance of law-abiding citizens bearing arms to protect their loved ones at home has never been more crucial. Thank God, this homeowner had the foresight to keep a firearm ready for the day evil darkened his doorstep. He reportedly made that decision after a previous break-in that left his family frightened. Our prayers go out to the real victims in this tragedy — the homeowner and his family.
