If You Break Into Homes…

You will eventually run into an armed homeowner. What happens next will not surprise anyone. Police: Homeowner shoots burglary suspect in Nichols Hills.

So it seems this guy was breaking into cars and possibly homes as well.

“We believe the suspect was confronted by a homeowner, some type of altercation took place. Suspect was shot at least one time,” [Nichols Hills Police Chief Steve] Cox said. “While officers in the area were looking for the suspect, it was determined we started getting several calls of other residences and autos being broken into.”

Cops found the guy doing the breaking in, and they took him to a local hospital. He will be moved to the county jail as soon as the doctors are through with him.

An Uninvited Guest

He should have left, when they asked nicely. EPD: Man critical after being shot by homeowner.

The [911] caller said the homeowners woke up to a man in their house sitting at their kitchen table, at which time they asked the man to leave their residence.

The homeowners told police the man walked outside and then around their house, looking in windows, and at which time one of the homeowners went outside with a pistol and again asked the man to leave.

He didn’t leave, instead he rushed the guy with the gun. Two shots were fired, and the uninvited guest was hit once. He was taken to a local hospital, and then to Oklahoma University Medical Center.

He Was Told To Not Come Back. He Came Back

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.

Neighbors Were Shocked

First, it is a story of armed self-defense. BAPD: Homeowner Fires At Woman Attempting To Break In.

She decided that she was entitled to break into another person’s home to retrieve property she believed was hers. She miscalculated.

Police said a woman was home when she heard a loud noise. She immediately called 911, picked up her gun and walked toward a broken window.

“[She]noticed that a window had been broken and saw a white female trying to get into the house, trying to gain entry into the house,” said Officer Koch. “[The] homeowner fired shot in the direction of the suspect, its unknown whether the suspect was injured.

Cops apparently went on at length about how this is not a random event.

The neighbors? They were shocked to discover that they live in the Real World™ and not in some crime-free paradise.

Rick Plantin is one of several people living in the neighborhood who was shocked to hear the sound of a police chopper.

“It’s scary, it really is,” said Plantin.

He did eventually arrive at the point were he realized that crime can happen “in any neighborhood.”

They Suffered a Failure of the Victim-selection Process

They thought it was a good idea to break into an occupied home, where they found an armed homeowner. Broken Arrow homeowner reportedly shoots burglary suspect in leg

After shooting the guy who broke into his home at 4AM, he called 911.

When officers arrived, they encountered three people walking from the home into the front yard, at which point they were detained.

The guy who got shot was “bleeding profusely” from a leg wound. Cops applied a tourniquet and he was taken to a local hospital for surgery.

Self-defense is a human-right, and in Oklahoma it is your legal right (Thanks to the Make My Day Law).

The “How Dare You Live Without Me” Attitude Didn’t Work Out

He was the EX boyfriend, but he apparently had trouble dealing with that. Man Shot, Killed Breaking Into Tulsa Home Was Woman’s Ex-Boyfriend, Police Say

He had a history of stalking her. He sent her a picture of himself in front of her home on July 4th. Escalating to breaking into her home is not a good thing.

He threw a table through a sliding-glass door at 3 AM.

Police said she fired five times but hit the ex-boyfriend only once.

“He’s moving through the house because the rounds are going from here to here to here, and he was at the front door trying to leave when he collapsed,” Tulsa Police Sergeant Dave Walker said.

Because nothing says “I love you” like creepy stalker behavior and violence.

And people (me included) need to spend more time at the range. Though it does point up the problem with limiting the number of rounds at my disposal. (Adrenalin can screw up your ability to aim.)

“All indications is she was in her home doing what she was supposed to do and it was him doing something he wasn’t supposed to do that caused him to be dead,” Walker said.

An Epic Failure of the Victim Selection Process

His night didn’t turn out the way he planned. Chaotic 911 call details moment Oklahoma couple shoots intruder in the chest

So the couple who owns the home wake up at 3:30 AM to the sound of an intruder rummaging through their house. The woman loads her pistol and gives it to her “military trained” husband. (She had been practicing since a previous home invasion.) She then calls 911.

They said they told him to lay down but he refused. The woman called police and, on the 911 call, both can be heard ordering him to lay down.

Allery allegedly continued walking away from them, refusing to lay down, until he walked up the steps leading out of the sun room. There, he reached a door he couldn’t open while, below him, the couple continued to yell at him.

That’s when he turned around and, according to the affidavit, “began moving towards” the man with the gun. That’s when the homeowner shot Allery in the chest.

Oklahoma has a “Make My Day” law, so it is extremely unlikely that the homeowners will be charged. (They haven’t been.) The guy who got shot was taken to Oklahoma University Medical Center, and then he was taken to lockup.
