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.

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.

No word on what the book was. Mother who stabbed daughter, set house on fire, arrested
Investigators say a woman [Taheerah Ahmad] who allegedly bound and gagged her three daughters, stabbed the eldest repeatedly and set their house on fire told them she had become upset after observing two of her children reading a book.
This is just insane.
I have been hoping for more information to be published on this story, but you get what they’re offering. Police: Owner of vacant home shoots intruder in Bartlesville; man hospitalized with non-life-threatening injury
So a guy goes to check on a vacant house he owns – it had been broken into recently. He finds a stranger hiding in the attic.
“At some point the homeowner fired a shot striking the suspect once.”
The guy who got shot was taken to a local hospital, where he is expected to survive his injury.

Just give them what they want, and they will leave you alone. That’s what we’re told, but this guy had the money and was heading for the door, when he turned around and came back. GRAPHIC VIDEO: Liquor store owner recounts robbery that led to shooting.
He came into the store with a shotgun and threatened the clerk, who is the daughter of the owner. She opens the register, and he takes the cash. The clerk and her mother then hide behind the counter.
Then, after it appears he’s going to leave the store, Lee and her mother crouch behind the counter and Lee hands a pistol from under the register to her mother. Suddenly, the suspect is seen running back behind the counter. At that point, Ring fires her first shot.
“All I was thinking was ‘Just give him the money and go,’ and next thing I know, I see him back in my face,” Ring said.
Both women were armed at that point, so things didn’t go well for the would-be robber.
She fires at least two shots at him before the video ends. Most of the shots aimed at the suspected robber appear to strike him.
The bad guy is in the hospital, being treated for gunshot wounds.
The Left loves to say, “Just give them what they want, and everything will be OK.” Of course it isn’t true. Tulsa Store Clerk Shot In Leg During Robbery
And the Left never likes to bring up the subject of rape when they are giving that advice. But that is a story for another time.
Police say the man walked into the store and pointed a gun at the clerk, demanding cash from the store’s clerk.
After getting the cash, the man shot that clerk in the leg.
Violent criminals don’t stop being violent criminals because of anything you are doing or not doing.
Even the cops are not clear on this. Though mostly they don’t like the “little people” – that’s you and me – stealing their thunder.
“That is the advice we give victims, just comply. And then when they do comply, someone is callous enough to inflict injury,” said Tulsa Police Captain Mike Williams.
The fact that the advice is so flawed, doesn’t stop them from giving it. (And the cops have not caught the guy with the gun.)
Being armed may not have saved this clerk from getting shot. (He is expected to be OK.) Cooperation is not the iron clad guarantee that some, including cops and corporate officers, who will almost certainly never face a robber in one of their stores, or delivering one of the pizzas, or whatever, would have you believe. (“There are no guarantees in this life save for death and next winter’s snow.”) Cooperation is a strategy. And a fairly poor strategy at that.
There are rules of safe gun-handling, and they are there for a reason. This guy needs a refresher course. Tulsa police: Suspected burglar shot his alleged partner in crime
So they thought it would be a good idea to rob a house. (A very modest house by the look of things.) But someone was home when they tried to break-in.
Police say the homeowner’s girlfriend was at the house when she heard someone breaking into a back window.
They say she armed herself and started yelling that she was calling 911.
As the two miscreants were beating a hasty retreat, one guy decided it would be a good idea to fire a shot at the house. For spite? Who knows. But he ended up shooting his luckless buddy in the arm. The shot hit an artery.
The wounded guy showed up at a hospital. He will be arrested after he has recovered from his surgery. The cops are still looking for the idiot with the gun, though one would think the guy who got shot might want some revenge.
All the intended victim had to do was arm herself, call 911, and announce what she was doing to make these guys think that they picked the wrong house. If the idiot hadn’t shot his partner, this story would probably have never made the news, because what would the reporter say? How would they paint a picture of guns as dangerous things if no one got hurt?
