TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Police say a man was fatally shot by a homeowner after forcing his way inside a residence in north Tulsa.
Tulsa Police Department Sgt. Dave Walker said that a man, whose name has not been released, knocked on the front door of a home on Thursday shortly before midnight. Walker said that when a man and a woman answered the door, the alleged intruder forced them inside at gunpoint before looting the house.
According to authorities, the male homeowner retrieved a handgun and shot the other man, who fled the house and ran to the corner of a street where he was found dead by police.
No arrests have been made in the case, and an investigation is ongoing.
