An Oklahoma City man is being hailed a hero after he fatally shot his neighbor who was attempting to down three month old twins, one boy and one girl, as he held the mother at knife-point.
Leland Foster forced his way into the house that his estranged wife was living in. He man handled her and their two infant babies into a bathroom where he attempted to drown them.
A 12-year-old girl was in the house when Leland barged in, but she was able to get out and flag down the neighbor, Cash Freeman.
Freeman quickly gabbed his revolver and rushed into the home to help. When he walked in, he found Foster trying to murder the babies and shot him twice in the back. The shots were fatal according to KFOR.
The babies were flown Oklahoma City Hospital for observation but have since been released.
We spoke to Freeman off camera and he told us when he saw what was happening in the bathroom, he did what he had to do to save the babies. However, he told us he was concerned that he could be in trouble.
Freeman was brought in for questioning and then released. While it is up to the district attorney to decide whether the shooting was justifiable or not, I don’t see how they could him guilty!
His neighbors seem to think so as well. Summer Pierce said she doesn’t think he deserves any charges. He was just saving the mother and babies. Pierce stated, “I think he did the right thing because who knows what would happen, because who knows what would have happened to the babies if he hadn’t intervened. They might not have made it.”
Foster was not an innocent man in the past either. He had domestic abuse and arson charges in his past, to which he pleased no contest.
It sounds to me like the world is a better place without the scumbag.
