Homeowner Shoots At Burglars, Hits Friend
A man is in the hospital after he was accidentally shot when his friend tried to shoot two burglars, Oklahoma City police said.
It happened around 12:30 a.m. Monday morning when two men broke into the house near Northeast 42nd Street and Prospect Avenue, police said. The homeowner heard the burglars, grabbed a gun and allegedly began firing. Instead of hitting the burglars, a bullet hit the homeowner's friend. The burglars ran away from the house.
The homeowner and his friend got into a car and drove to the hospital. Their trip was delayed when they were pulled over by police for speeding a few blocks away, police said. The victim was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
Police do not have a description of the burglars. Charges are not expected to be filed, police said.
