South Dakota Forced Entry Leads To Shooting

Brookings, South Dakota

From April 9, 2009 KELO-TV:
Authorities are investigating a deadly shooting that happened shortly before 2 a.m. Thursday in Brookings.

According to officials, Brookings Police responded to a report that a resident had shot someone breaking into his house early Thursday morning.

Twenty-three-year-old Bradley Joe Odens was found fatally wounded inside the house. Odens was later pronounced dead at the Brookings Hospital.

Police say initial reports indicate Odens may have been confused about where he was, but was warned by the 28-year-old resident that he was at the wrong address. Odens then continued to make forcible entry and was shot by the resident.

Odens lived two houses away from the incident, but police say the two did not know each other.
