Two Ada, Oklahoma neighbors came to death blows 12:30pm on Friday.
A Frantic woman called police and that is when the horrific incident unfolded.
The mother of three-month-old twins — a boy and a girl — reported the children’s father Leland Michael Foster, 27, was trying to drown the children and threatening to kill her with a knife.
Audibly, the dispatchers could hear a struggle between the two adults and screaming.
Not waiting for the police to arrive the homeowner’s 12yr-old granddaughter took matters into her own hands.
Racing next-door to the neighbor’s house, Cash Freeman, she pleaded for his help.
Cash immediately grabbed his revolver and raced to help.
Entering the residence, Freeman saw the father actively drowning his children while keeping the mother away with a knife.
Assessing the situation, Cash fired two lethal shots into Foster.
Foster has a previous record of domestic abuse by strangulation and arson.
Cash was interview on the scene, but prosecutors still plan to ‘review the circumstances’ to make sure the shooting was justified.
The neighborhood is a little shaken by the event.
One resident spoke to reporters.
‘It’s awful because I’ve held the babies and, like, I’ve played with them and I just gave them clothes yesterday,’ neighbor Summer Pierce told KFOR.
In 2011, officers responding to Foster’s home on a domestic abuse complaint found a pile of clothes burning on a mattress, and a bathtub filled with water and electronics including a computer and gaming system, NewsOK reported.
Did Cash Freeman do the right thing?
