TULSA - An attempted home invasion early Wednesday morning ended when the homeowner fired at the suspects.
It happened in a neighborhood near 71st and Harvard around 5 a.m.
Police said they received multiple calls from neighbors about shots fired.
When they arrived, they found the homeowner and his wife, who said they'd awoken to their security alarm sounding and two suspects trying to break in.
The homeowner fired at the suspects outside the home in self-defense, police say.

71st and Harvard is a decent part of town, just to give people some context.
I stood in the parking lot of a Mexican-food restaurant on 71st in Tulsa, on my way to my hotel, many, many years ago, and watched a live shootout.
One guy for sure was hit. Took forever for anyone to show up and it was the Fire Department that got there first. I saw (apparently) the only victim, who had been hit twice. He was still alive.
Not a smart idea to bring nothing but stupid to a gun fight.
Glas for the homeowner it was not SWAT out for some practice.
fired at them ..sad thing is if he offed one he would be charged as the DA would say they were fleeing..
71st and Hawvawd is a nice part of town.
Wonder if it was in them town homes.
The only thing known for sure is that they are mind numbingly stupid. Weather that is hint or not is a mystery or maybe not.
I don’t know about that. I don’t think so in Tulsa ... :-) ...
There was a pharmacist in Oklahoma City that shot a robber in his store. He stepped over him and went outside. Then he came back inside, walked past him again and got ANOTHER GUN, walked back to the guy on the floor (was still there and not moving all that time) and he proceeded to shoot him about four or five more times ... LOL ...
Now that pharmacist was charged with murder and I do believe he was convicted!
The crooks travel unfortunately. ALSO ... even if it is a good part of time ... some of those “good people” do buy drugs.
Oooops ... that darn autocorrect!
time = town
Tell me about it.
you don’t break windows of the house to flee if you’re already outside.
and where did you get that tid bit of info
common sense. one doesn’t break the windows of the house in order to flee, if one is already on the outside of the house.
you can flee from anywhere, without having to break windows, doors, etc, if you are already on the outside of the building. you just run away. no property damage, no trying to get into the building first....
where in the article does it mention breaking of windows.MY POINT
you’re right. i asumed’thebreakingin was a window breaking.
my overall point though is still valid. you don’t have to break into a house in order to flee from it as you’re already outside.
