A wheelchair-bound man in Tulsa, Oklahoma, opened fire on three alleged home invaders Thursday morning, killing two and sending one fleeing out a bedroom window, KJRH reported. The third man is still on the loose.
Police say that after a dispute broke out outside the resident’s apartment, the three men broke down the door and began assaulting a friend of the wheelchair-bound man inside.
Protecting his home and his friend, the man fired on the alleged armed intruders.
Police found Kejuan Shields and Demario Harris dead in the resident’s apartment.
The resident’s mother, Anita Penn, said he was paralyzed in 2011 after he was shot seven times.
“The first time the guy kicked in the door, he was in the bed, asleep and they shot him seven times,” Penn told KTUL. “That’s why he’s in a wheelchair today.”
Tulsa residents have been defending themselves at impressive rates this year, taking advantage of Oklahoma’s broad protections for defending yourself against intruders.
