An attempted home invasion quickly went south in a quiet St. Louis neighborhood on Monday night when a man shot the two suspects, critically injuring one and killing the other, as they were holding a gun to his daughters head and trying to enter the home.
The man’s 17-year-old daughter was outside retrieving something from her car around 11 p.m. Monday night when she was approached by two men, both of which were armed. One of the man put a gun to her head and demanded she return inside so they could follow her in.
When her father saw what was going on out front, he went to grab his own gun. Shortly after he fired several shots at the men, fatally injuring one and hitting the other in the chest and legs.
The girl’s mother grabbed a gun as well and was able to get off one shot, however it’s being reported than she didn’t hit either suspect.
When police arrived at the scene the first suspect was pronounced dead. The second suspect was able to flee by getting into the first suspect’s vehicle and calling his brother to take him to the hospital where he remains in critical condition with gunshot wounds to both thighs and his chest.
The heroic father, who said he doesn’t live at the home with his daughter and had no idea why the men chose their home, said that he had no choice but to engage the suspects.
“He was holding her hostage. She was a human shield. So I did what I had to do.”
He asked that his name not be released, but told Fox2 that “It wasn’t like that. It just happened. I didn’t have no choice. He had my daughter so I did what I had to do,” when asked how he found the courage to fire at the men holding his daughter in such a manner.
While he realizes he did what was necessary in order to save his daughter’s life, the father also expressed remorse for having to take such extreme actions.
“My condolences goes out to all the families involved. I don’t know him. I wish it hadn’t happened. So like I said, to the moms, fathers, all the other people involved, I apologize.”
This is another great example of what happens when good people are allowed to own guns. Unfortunately, this story won’t make the headlines and the mainstream media won’t touch it because it doesn’t fit their agenda.
Maybe nanny Bloomberg and his hired shill Shannon Watts should read more stories like this so they realize that the only true way to stop bad people with guns is for good people to counter their force.
