    "BLANCHARD, Okla. – Authorities don't plan to file charges against an Oklahoma woman who fatally shot a New Year's Eve intruder at her house while she had a 911 dispatcher on the phone, but the intruder's alleged accomplice has been charged in the death.
    A 911 tape released to Oklahoma City media outlets Wednesday reveals that 18-year-old Sarah McKinley asked a Grady County dispatcher for permission to shoot the intruder. McKinley's 3-month-old son was with her when she shot Justin Shane Martin, 24, at her Blanchard mobile home.

    "I've got two guns in my hand. Is it OK to shoot him if he comes in this door?" McKinley asked the dispatcher.
    "Well, you have to do whatever you can do to protect yourself," the dispatcher is heard telling McKinley. "I can't tell you that you can do that, but you have to do what you have to do to protect your baby."
    Oklahoma law allows the use of deadly force against intruders, and prosecutors said McKinley clearly acted in self-defense. According to court documents, Martin was holding a knife when he died."

    Wow, the break in took 20 minutes and they couldn't get police there in time?

    It's quite rural out there and generally not much need for law enforcement.
    Sounds like the jurisdiction was Grady county so the sheriff would be coming from Chickasha and they could certainly be twenty miles or more away.
    The Oklahoman article said something about the dispatcher also asking the the police from the tiny town of Blanchard for assistance as they were closer (though not their jurisdiction).

    20 mins is a horrible response time but in a situation like that lets presume there was a 2 min response time once the person is in your home they could do a lot of damage in those 120 seconds.

    when i lived in Jacksonville fl there was a gun shop that ran a radio commercial that was pretty much identical to this story. A woman on the phone with 911 and the 911 operator tells here the cops will be there in 5 mins. We then hear a door being smashed open and the woman tells 911 i don't have 5 mins, and she starts shooting.

    It's not unusual in Mendocino County, California, for Code 3 response times at night to be 40 minutes.

    20 mins is pretty quick in this area of southern OK. Gun in the hand beats a cop on the phone every time.

    She even pushed a couch in front of the door and the guy still forced his way in - I'm glad she had the means to defend herself!
