The son of a Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, area homeowner on Monday opened fire with an AR-15, killing three home invasion suspects.

The alleged invasion occurred around 12:30 pm on Clearwater Drive.

According to the Tulsa World, Wagoner County Sheriff’s deputy Nick Mahoney said the three home invasion suspects “were wearing all-black clothing, masks and gloves” and allegedly “forced their way into the home through a glass door in the back.” The homeowner’s 23-year-old son was asleep at the time, but awoke to “loud bangs” as the suspects made entrance. The son grabbed the AR-15, took position, and opened fire when the intruders walked into the hallway.

Two of the suspects collapsed and died in the kitchen, a third suspect managed to get out of the house but collapsed and died in the yard.

Two of the deceased individuals were “16 0r 17” years old. One of the suspects was “18 or 19.” Deputy Mahoney said “investigators found a knife on one of the deceased in the kitchen and brass knuckles on the other.”

Later on Monday, 21-year-old “Elizabeth Marie Rodriguez of Oologah” went to the Broken Arrow Police Department and turned herself in. She confessed to being the getaway driver for the dead trio and was arrested. She was charged with “three complaints each of first-degree murder and first-degree burglary.”

An unidentified neighbor who heard the homeowner’s son open fire said, “The shots were so loud — loud enough that I ran to the window to see what had happened. Something in me knew it was gunshots, but I didn’t know what had happened until I went to leave my house and saw all the police officers.”
