A hearing-impaired woman in eastern Oklahoma fatally shot an intruder inside her home near the Arkansas border.
Le Flore County Sheriff Rob Seale says the woman was uninjured when a man broke into her home about 5:30 Sunday evening in Rock Island.
Seale says the woman yelled at the man to get out of the house and shot him once when he moved toward her. He says the woman did not know the man and had never seen him before.
Deputies discovered the suspect’s body in the kitchen area of the house. He was pronounced dead at the scene. His body was transported to the state Medical Examiner’s Office for identification.
