A Muskogee business owner told police he shot a man breaking into his business.
Muskogee police are investigating a case where the owner of Fast Wrecker shot a suspected burglar he says he caught breaking into his business early Thursday morning.
Oklahomas Stand Your Ground law expanded to businesses in 2011, that allows a business owner to shoot an intruder if they feel they fear death or great bodily harm. The intruder doesnt have to be armed.
In the three-and-a-half minute 911 call, business owner, Dale Ford, didnt know at first if he shot the suspected burglar.
Ford: "I fired a couple shots at him but he is here in my shop. Did I hit ya? He says I hit him in his arm. It's just a 22.

“Stand your ground” should be the law nationwide. It comports perfectly with Constitutional freedoms.
People, Oklahoma does not tolerate this crap. If you want to commit random crimes against strangers, you literally take your life in your own hands.
As it should be.
