A Oklahoma man who was attempting to drown his 3-month-old twins was shot and killed by his neighbor.
Lisa Bratcher a spokeswoman for the city of Ada, told reporters that 27-year-old Leland Foster, of Poteau, did indeed die from gunshot wounds shot at him from his neighbor.
The neighbor Cash Freedom was alerted at his house by a 12-year-old girl who ran from that home and alerted the neighbor that she needed help.
Lisa Bratcher said the neighbor, Cash Freeman, told police that he went to the home armed with his handgun and did shoot Leland Foster twice after seeing him holding the infant twins under water in the bathtub while also threatening the children’s mother with a knife.
It was reported that Cash Freeman shot Leland Foster twice in the back.
Lisa Bratcher the spokeswoman said the twins were taken to the hospital in stable condition and the neighbor, Cash Freeman was questioned and then released by Police.
Cash Freeman said he felt that he did the right thing, but was very worried he may be in trouble.
The District Attorney’s office will be deciding whether the killing was justified and if Cash Freeman will be facing any charges.
Leland Foster had been charged with domestic abuse by strangulation and arson, in 2011.
