The call came through to the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office around 4 a.m. last Thursday. A homeowner reported someone trying to break in through the back door. After hanging up, the man of the house went to grab his firearm in order to protect his wife and their two sleeping children.
According to KTUL-TV, as he approached the back door, the homeowner noticed the suspect was armed, so he fired his gun and hit the intruder twice. The suspect immediately dropped to the ground, but eventually jumped up and ran—approaching neighboring homes to ask for help.
Police found the 33-year-old suspect lying in a street, not far from the house he attempted to burglarize. The injured invader was transported to the hospital in potentially serious condition. Investigators also found multiple firearms outside the home where the original encounter took place, all of which appear to belong to the suspect.
