A heavily pregnant woman used an AR-15 to kill a home intruder after two masked men entered her home in Florida, pistol-whipped her husband and violently grabbed their daughter.
Jeremy King, from Lithia in Florida, was at home with his wife when two armed men barged in at around 9pm, pointed a gun at his head and demanded money.
They also grabbed the couple’s 11-year-old daughter as Mr King tried to explain they didn’t have anything to give them and the violence escalated.

Mr King said one of the men then started pistol-whipping him while another kicked him repeatedly in the head.
His wife, who is eight months pregnant, was in the back bedroom and looked out to see what was going on.
Mr King said one of the men then shot at his wife. She then retreated, grabbed an AR-15 and returned fire.
Mr King told Bay News 9: ‘When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him.
‘He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.’
‘I’ve got a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity, a concussion, 20 stitches and three staples in my head.’
Mr King said he doesn’t know who they are, has never met them and has no idea why he was targeted.
Deputies later found a man dead in a nearby ditch. The other gunman ran off after the fatal shot was fired. Investigators are still looking for the second gunman.
The sheriff’s office added that the firearm was in the home legally.
