Homeowner Shoots, Kills Alleged Intruder in Tulsa

Americans make up only four percent of the global population but they own 40 percent of the world's firearms, according to a recent study published by the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva

Tulsa police are investigating a shooting in which a homeowner killed an alleged home intruder Tuesday morning.

KTUL reports that the police dispatcher indicated “a caller told them someone broke into their home and they shot the intruder.”

KJRH reports that the incident occurred around 9 a.m. “in the 4900 block of South Columbia.” They note that the alleged intruder was pronounced dead at the scene and that he was shot “in the bathroom of the home.”


Neighbors said the home has been robbed in the past and, according to Newson6, police indicate there was “a similar shooting at the same location in October 2013.”

The news out of Tulsa comes just days after 74-year-old Leavenworth, Kansas, woman shot and killed a possible burglar at her home. The Associated Press reported that the 74-year-old shot the man then suffered a “medical event” and had to be taken to the hospital for treatment too.

She is expected to survive.
