Large rural home, wife home alone, two assailants dressed in camo and openly armed. Wife calls husband who happened to be almost home anyway, he shot and killed both assailants. No more details right now since it's a breaking story. I don't have an article to post since it's too recent and they haven't written one yet.
Update: two teenagers wanted up in Oklahoma, shootout on open ranch land, numerous rounds were fired by both sides, the homeowner (male) was slightly wounded, he hit both assailants but both died of self inflicted wounds.
I'm going to guess meth was involved.
So the kid that stole all of the guns and ammo is still not accounted for? Hmm?

By the way the story reads the male homeowner ran inside the house to get his gun when he got home. So the woman has a gun available to her but obviously wasn't comfortable with guns and/or hasn't used it before. When someone tries to break in, she has to call her husband! She's incredibly lucky that he was so close and he wasn't killed between his vehicle and the home!! I'm glad it worked out for them and I hope she realizes now the importance of being able to use the guns that were available to her. Those of you who ask for advice on getting your wife to shoot, IMO this story illustrates the why perfectly. Break ins and bad things don't just happen when hubby is home or when you're out together.
At the end of the day, good outcome and I'm glad it worked out like it did. I'm just shaking my head, it could have had such a different outcome.
...or the kid had the combo/keys...by 12 mine knew how to reach all my weapons, how to shoot them well, and more importantly, when and when not to do so...the drug monkey got on that boy's neck and it rides hard...
More details coming out today, they still don't know what the motive was but these two had been missing since Monday. Oklahoma City to Ellis County is about a 5 hour drive so that's not that far. They had taken 15 guns from the parents' house of one. The shootout lasted approximately 5 minutes and took place out in the open, a neighboring rancher heard the shooting and joined in. Gotta love rural Texas, they don't run away from gunfire they grab their own and join in! No charges are expected against anyone involved, this is covered under both Castle and Stand Your Ground doctrines.
As a side note, in the DFW area we average a justified home defense shooting roughly once a week. 95% of the time within hours after it being on the news there is a police spokesperson saying that no charges are expected. They still have to send the case to a grand jury, but almost never are people charged with any crime. The general thinking is essentially that if you get shot during a home invasion by the resident then you deserved it.
The wife wasn't comfortable with guns? Doesn't she know that all she had to do was run outside with the double-barrel shotgun and fire two shots in the air? :D
