Man Shot by Homeowner after Allegedly Breaking into Home
At 3:50 a.m. Sunday morning Tulsa police officers responded to a shooting on the 2500 block of East First Street.
Upon arriving, police made contact with the female homeowner and then found a 19-year-old male who had been shot in the backyard.
The initial investigation shows that the 19-year-old male had entered the home through the window of the room of homeowner's 19-year-old daughter, according to TPD captain Steve Odom.
The 19-year-old daughter then reportedly got involved in an altercation with the man and was punched in the face.
The daughter then reportedly screamed for help, which the homeowner heard.
The mother grabbed her revolver and allegedly shot the man.
The victim was transported to Saint Francis but is in stable condition and expected to survive, according to Odom.
Odom said that there were no indications that there was a previous relationship between the victim and the 19-year-old daughter.
The homeowner was not arrested.
No names have been released yet. The investigation is ongoing.
