Home Invaders Shot Dead By Resident – Getaway Driver Says She ‘Doesn’t Blame’ Shooter
A home invasion turned deadly after a resident was armed and ready when they attempted to enter the house in Oklahoma. The would-be teen burglars were all shot dead by the homeowner’s son, now the getaway driver faces three counts of felony murder.
On Monday at 12:30 p.m., Maxwell Cook, 19, Jacob Redfearn, 17, and 16-year-old Jaykob Woodruff broke into the wrong home in a robbery attempt. The three teenagers were wearing masks and gloves and wielding a knife and brass knuckles. The three suspects forced entry into the home through the back door by smashing the glass.
Zach Peters, the son of the homeowner, was asleep at the house, but was woken up when he heard “loud bangs” coming from the back door. The 23-year-old armed himself with an AR-15 rifle and walked towards the back door of the home in Broken Arrow, near Tulsa.
“Upon making entry to the home one of the residents fired a rifle striking all three of the suspects,” a spokesperson for Wagoner County Sheriff’s office said in a statement. “Two of the suspects died inside the home while one was able to run to the driveway before succumbing to his injuries.”
After shooting the intruders, Peters called 911. He was alone at the time of the home invasion.
“I shot two of them, now I am barricaded in my bedroom,” he tells the 911 operator. “I can hear one of them talking.”
