Justice Served By a Teen With An AR-15

Three would-be robbers who doesn't deserve any mercy at all were rightfully shot and killed last 27 March when an Oklahoma homeowner's son opened fire on them with an AR-15, authorities said.

Wagoner County sheriff's deputies were called to the home in Broken Arrow, southeast of Tulsa in the United States at around 12:30 P.M. local time. When they arrived, they found the three dead suspects and two uninjured residents.

Sheriff's spokesman Deputy Nick Mahoney said the suspects entered the home uninvited through a glass back door with the intent to burglarize it and even commit more horrid crimes. It was not immediately clear why they picked that home, but it doesn't really matter.

Mahoney said the suspects encountered the homeowner's brave 19-year-old son, who opened fire after an exchange of words. Two of the suspects died in the home's kitchen while a third was found in the driveway.

It was not immediately clear whether the suspects were armed because there is no sense asking them in the first place, but Mahoney said the preliminary investigation indicated the shootings were in self-defense. The homeowner's son volunteered to give a statement at the sheriff's office.

This is very, very unusual for us [in Wagoner County]," Mahoney told the Tulsa World. "It's not something we're used to."
