This has not just been a very good weekend for the bunglers among us.
A homeowner fatally shot a man Saturday after he allegedly broke into the residence and made death threats to the people inside.
The intruder broke into the residence in the 800 block of North Oxford Avenue around 11 a.m. Saturday, Tulsa Police Lt. Brandon Watkins said. At least three people were in the home.
“When he kicked in the door, they said he was talking crazy and making threats to kill everyone inside,” Watkins said.
The homeowner told investigators he did not know the man, Watkins said. The man allegedly walked through the house and kicked in interior doors.
The owner of the home then retrieved a rifle and fired one shot, striking the man in the torso, Watkins said. All occupants of the home left the residence and called 911 from a neighbor’s residence.
Emergency responders pronounced the man dead at the scene, Tulsa police said in a news release.
The identity of the man who was shot is being withheld pending family notification.
Those inside the home along with witnesses were questioned and released pending further investigation.
