GUTHRIE, Okla. – One person was shot and killed Thursday on Guthrie’s east side.

Police said a homeowner opened fire on a naked intruder who stunned the family after breaking through a back door.

That homeowner told police his family was asleep when they first heard banging at the door.

He loaded his weapon and shot the man when he walked into the kitchen and lunged at him.

The victim’s name hasn’t been released but they said he’s a white male in his 40s who lives in the area.

Officials said the suspected intruder may have been suffering from mental health issues.

Police found evidence the back door was pried open.

They said the homeowner acted in self defense so charges against him are not likely.

It appears that the "victim" described here is the intruder, not the father who had to use deadly force to protect himself and his family.

I am SO tired of this BS from the media!!!

Ever heard the saying, "be careful what you wish for..."?

“the suspected intruder may have been suffering from mental health issues?”...That has been resolved.

*******************************************************************
Dude, it happens all the time. It’s just that such “intruders” are never shot or reported to authorities. And once these naked ladies find out that they can get away with it, they become repeat offenders—and their victims never seem to learn that the intrusive behavior will continue if they don’t report it.

I noticed the wording of the article, and was wonderin' if Guthrie Oklahoma gun laws criminalize the loaded storage of a firearm?

In California urban areas, the authorities try to get a home defender to indicate the firearm was stored loaded so they can charge him criminally, working around California's Castle Doctrine law.

If anyone is concerned about home invaders, amateurs or professionals (if you know what I mean and I think you do), busting through their door, I highly recommend installing a "Door Club", or similar device.

Speaking from personal experience, it is a royal pain to get through a solid wooden, much less a metal door with one of these installed. You have to practically break apart the entire door, making god-awful noises, and giving anyone inside the better part of a minute or two to prepare themselves. If, of course, you have the tools to break apart the entire door, which few naked, drug-addled psychopaths typically do.

what if the door opens out? Most new building codes require that.

we had a drunk/drugged out dude try to break into our house naked- he couldn’t and slipped into out unlocked van and crapped all over everything- fortunately we didn’t have to shoot the poor slob- becasuse he didn’t make it into the house- but it was unnerving to say the least- He later died from overdose a few years later

Commercial buildings yes, but it is pretty impossible to zone for residential buildings, because doors are easy to modify to swing in, which is the preferred method for residential.

A simple logic for residential doors swinging in is to protect them from rain damage. An exception is mobile homes, because there would be a cost in lost area inside if the door swung in.
