Southwest Oklahoma Woman Fights Off Home Invader

posted on April 20, 2017

In a quiet Lawton, Okla., neighborhood just after 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, a woman reportedly heard strange noises coming from inside her home. Fearful, she grabbed her gun and went to investigate. 

Authorities tell KSWO-TV 7 the woman encountered a man, later identified as Rocky Stamper, who she claims had broken into her residence. So she took aim and fired. Police arrived at the scene to find the suspect unresponsive, and he was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later died.

The victim’s neighbor had just dropped her son off at school and arrived home to find the street filled with police cars. “It’s a pretty scary moment,” she told reporters. “You wonder what's going on a few houses down.” However, she added that her family is thankful for vigilant law enforcement. “It makes me feel pretty good knowing that they're there and I see them driving around.”
