The resident of an Oklahoma City, Okla., home took action when an intruder allegedly forced his way inside on Sept. 30, 2022. Around 4 a.m., the resident was awakened by the sounds of movement inside the home, which he initially believed to be his niece. However, upon venturing out into the hallway to investigate, the resident discovered a stranger sitting quietly at the kitchen table. The stranger barely spoke for a while before, as the resident recalled, "He started walking around, mumbling, and went into my living room, knocked some pictures down, so I went into my bedroom and grabbed my gun."

The resident then called to his niece as the stranger continued to stumble around, and his niece told him that she had no idea who the man was. As the intruder ran into a religious shrine and knocked it over, the resident pointed his firearm at the man. However, the intruder then began to advance on the resident. Hesitant, but fearing for his life in that instant, the resident fired on the man, wounding him. The stricken intruder was taken to a local hospital, where he was expected to recover from his injuries. (, Oklahoma City, Okla., 08/01/2022)
