CHOCTAW, Okla. (AP) – Police in Choctaw say an off-duty Midwest City police officer shot and killed a man who had apparently broken into the home of the officer’s in-laws.

Choctaw Police Chief Connie Clay told reporters that the officer was checking on the home because his in-laws are away and he found the door open and the home ransacked. Clay said the off-duty officer entered the home where he was met by a man with a gun and the officer shot and killed the man.

The names of the off-duty officer and the dead man have not been released.

Choctaw police and Oklahoma County deputies are investigating the shooting.
