18-year-old Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, mom Sarah McKinley shot and killed an intruder when two men tried to break into her home on New Year’s Eve (video below).

McKinley told ABC News that she was home alone with her 3-month-old baby when she heard the intruders.

McKinley picked up a 12-guage shotgun and a pistol, called 911 and said: "I’ve got two guns in my hand. is it okay to shoot him if he comes in this door? I’m here by myself with my infant baby, can I please get a dispatcher out here immediately?”

The 911 operator told her that if her doors were locked, she could use deadly force: “I can’t tell you that you can do that, but you do what you have to do to protect your baby."

McKinley used the one of the guns to kill Justin Martin after he kicked in the door. A second man, Dustin Stewart, later turned himself in to police.
