Two Tulsa residents used their firearms this week to defend themselves against home invaders.
According to NewsChannel 10, “A woman called 911 early Friday to report that a man came to her door asking to use the phone, then forced himself inside and began gathering items to steal. Walker says a man who lived at the home retrieved a handgun and shot the suspect. The suspected robber ran out of the home and collapsed nearby, where he was later pronounced dead.”
The Daily Oklahoman reported homicide Sgt. Dave Walker said that on Thursday, “Officers responded to a reported shooting at a residence on East Young Place between North Yorktown and North Xanthus avenues at about 2:50 a.m. and found a 31-year-old man dead from a gunshot wound.” The man, whose name was not released, was reportedly shot by a 27-year-old woman.
“The woman told police the man came into her house through the back window and ‘confronted’ her,” Walker said.
