Some people just can’t take a hint about being the EX-boyfriend. Man shoots daughter’s ex-boyfriend during alleged home invasion, police say.
Tulsa Police Sgt. Kurt Dodd said the father opened fire after the ex-boyfriend forced his way into the family’s home at about 4:35 p.m. in the 2300 block of South College Avenue. The man, whose named wasn’t released but is believed to be in his 20s, was struck twice in the chest.
He had been in a relationship with the daughter. She broke it off, and he was told to stay away. She didn’t live at her parents home but was visiting. They also had out-of-town guests who were avoiding Hurricane Florence.
According to police, the ex-boyfriend was told not to come back to the house but returned Wednesday afternoon and began beating on the front door. He then reportedly moved to the other side of the house and started beating on the back door before apparently breaking the latch to the garage and forcing his way inside the residence.
The father shot the man with a handgun during a confrontation inside the home.
The shooting is being investigated as self-defense.
Oklahoma has a “Stand Your Ground” law. (Actually I think it is called “Make My Day,” but I’m not 100% sure.) In any event, if you break into a home in Oklahoma, you should not be surprised about what happens.
The guy with the 2 gunshot wounds is in “emergent” condition. Which means serious or critical.
Self-defense is a Human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
