UPDATE - Edmond police say a homeowner shot and killed an intruder early Saturday morning.
Marlow Dewayne Wilson, Jr., 20, broke into a home in the 1900 block of Cobblestone Ct. about 3:40 a.m., according to police.
"One of the first things [the homeowner] did was call 911. That allows us to get here quickly," Edmond Police spokesperson Jenny Monroe said. "One person in the home was checking what was going on and the other person was on the phone with 911."
One homeowner shot Wilson. Monroe said Wilson was dead by the time EMSA arrived.
"We're just trying really to piece it together at this point, why this house and why here? Was it completely random or was there a reason behind it?" Monroe said.
Once the investigation is completed, the case will be turned over to the district attorney. he will decide if the shooting was justified and whether to press charges.

Now the paperwork starts..and then the gun owner will be death threats by anti-gun nuts that said since 911 was called he or she should've just put their hands up and say that one day he will get his punishment.
And then the family of the dead guy will sue the shooter cause the criminals civil rights were violated. Not mentioning that the civil rights of the homeowner were VIOLENTLY violated.
Then JESSE JACKSON and AL SHARPTON will hold rallies.

I think Oklahoma has their own castle doctrine, which prohibits civil action against citizens legally protecting themselves.
Not that everything else you mention won't happen anyway.

Unless the police can show that the homeowner lured in some innocent, it should be pretty clear that it's self defence and the case should be closed with a no-bill.

I think that the headline should read “Edmond homeowner shoots intruder-OK”

Apparently you didn't get there quickly enough, though, did you? Good thing, since the cops probably would have shot the homeowner and his dog first.

Years ago an OK policeman told me that if I shot someone, just be sure he was in the house.
Another time I heard a small town sheriff say, “If somebody runs from me, I fire two warning shots into their back and then yell ‘halt.’ “
