Homeowner Guns Down MWC Burglary Suspect

Authorities said a homeowner shot and killed a burglary suspect after a confrontation in a rural Midwest City neighborhood.

Oklahoma County Sheriff's spokesman Mark Myers said the resident told deputies he spotted a man breaking into a large shed on his property and confronted him about 2:30 p.m. Thursday. When the suspect got into his car and tried to flee, the homeowner said he stepped in front of the vehicle to prevent the man from leaving.

The homeowner said he fired one shot from a shotgun as the suspected burglar lunged toward him in his car.

Myers said the man died at the scene. The names of the victim and the shooter were not immediately released.
