As reported, an early morning burglar was shot in self defense by a homeowner:
Police say that just before 4:30am, a burglar entered a home on the 9300 block of East 93rd Street North in Owasso, OK. Acting in self defense, the homeowner reportedly grabbed his gun and fired, striking the burglar twice and ending the attack.

The case will be submitted to the Tusla County District Attorney’s office for review and possible charges.
Home invading criminals are a deadly and terrible threat for every man, woman, and child in the residence. Victims of home invasion all too often suffer torture, rape, kidnapping, and murder at the hands of criminals who care more about a few dollars than human life. The good news is that gun owners like this man can, and do, stop such criminals every day. Simply put, armed self defense works.
