    Man awakens to the sound of broken glass

    http://newsok.com/article/3179879/1197437326

    TULSA - A man shot a teenage intruder tonight who he said broke into his Tulsa apartment, which has no power, police said.

    The youth was identified only as a 16-year-old male.


    The man, a 20-year-old who police also would not identify, said he had been sleeping in his apartment in the 2100 block of S 99 East Avenue about 7:30 p.m. when he was awakened by the sound of breaking glass in another bedroom, Officer Leland Ashley said.

    Ashley said the man then retrieved a shotgun and went into the room and discovered a person holding what he believed was a gun, but later turned out to be a flashlight.

    The man then shot the youth once in the hip with birdshot, Ashley said.

    "The man stated that he was afraid for his life," Ashley said.

    The youth was taken to St. John Medical Center. His injury is not life-threatening and he will later be taken into police custody on a complaint of first-degree burglary, Ashley said.

    The man was not arrested.


    Good outcome, no name or exact address listed for the victim. I like it.

    Ooooaahhh bird shot at what, maybe 20'?... man, that's gonna leave a mark :) Talk about a shot in the a$$ :)

    Might just think twice before breaking someone else's window.

    Bad guy goes to jail (via the hospital), good guy goes home. Sounds like the best results that could be hoped for
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    At 20ft. the pattern of a 12 ga. shotgun is about 4", so this guy sustained a debilitating wound.
