Grandfather Of Teen Shot In Break-In Says Homeowner’s Gun Made For ‘Unfair Fight’


A family member of one of three teen suspects killed after breaking into a Cookson, Oklahoma home Monday, claims there should be a limit to self-defense laws.

“There’s got to be a limit to that law, I mean he shot all three of them; there was no need for that," said Jacob Schumacher, grandfather of Jacob Redfearn.

17 year-old Redfearn was shot and killed during the home invasion.

The homeowner's son has not been charged. Deputies believe he fired in self-defense.

Schumacher tells KTUL-TV, his grandson didn't have a chance.



“Brass knuckles against an AR-15, come on, who was afraid for their life," said Schumacher.

“They knew they could be punished for it but they did not deserve to die," said Schumacher.

Redfearn, 19-year old Maxwell Cook and 16-year old Jake Woodruff were shot by the homeowner’s son while breaking into the home last week.

Schumacher does say he supports the right to bear arms and protect your home. But he doesn’t agree with shooting and killing intruders.
