BLANCHARD, Okla. — A man was shot to death after trying to break into a woman’s home through the front door. The shooting occurred around 2 p.m. Saturday near Blanchard. Police say 18-year-old Sarah Dawn McKinley was home with her 3-month-old son when 24-year-old Justin Shane Martin and 29-year-old Dustin Louis Stewart forced their way in.
The woman pushed a couch against the front door to prevent him from coming inside.
When she saw that he was carrying a weapon she shot and killed him.
Police say she will not face any charges since the shooting has been ruled self-defense.
Stewart later surrendered to police and is being held in the Grady County Jail pending arraignment.
