Oklahoma: Self Defense And The Castle Doctrine

ar-15

ar-15Bearing Arms readers are, I’m sure, aware of the 23 year-old in Oklahoma, who confronted by three masked and armed burglars that had previously broken into his parent’s home, shot and killed them all, using an AR-15 variant. As editor Bob Owens reported, the grandfather of one of the ex-burglars disagrees with the outcome of the burglary on grounds of fair play:

There’s got to be a limit to that law, I mean he shot all three of them; there was no need for that,’ said Schumacher.

Schumacher does say he supports the right to bear arms and protect your home. But he doesn’t agree with shooting and killing intruders.

Owens sagely concluded:

I somewhat suspect that Mr. Schumacher’s position on shooting masked and armed robbers would be radically different if he was the victim of

The grandfather of one of three suspects killed during the alleged March 27 home invasion in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, says the use of an AR-15 against the suspects was “unfair.”

Breitbart News reported that the Broken Arrow homeowner’s 23-year-old son shot and killed three suspected home intruders with an AR-15. According to  Tulsa World, Wagoner County Sheriff’s deputy Nick Mahoney said the three suspects “were wearing all-black clothing, masks, and gloves” and allegedly “forced their way into the home through a glass door in the back.” The homeowner’s son was asleep at the time and awoke to “loud bangs” as the suspects made entrance. The son grabbed the AR-15 and opened fire when the intruders walked into the hallway.

Grandfather of Oklahoma teen killed by homeowner in burglary says AR15 made for ‘unfair’ fight

Three Oklahoma teenagers were killed last week when they broke into a house and were met by a homeowner with an AR15. Now the grandfather of one of the teenagers is speaking out about his grandson’s death.

According to KTUL-TV, Leroy Schumacher, grandfather of 17-year-old Jacob Redfearn, believes the death of Redfearn was unjustified because the homeowner’s AR15 gave him an unfair advantage over the three burglars.

Speaking to KTUL, Schumacher acknowledged that breaking into a house was “stupid,” but death was not the appropriate consequence.

“What these three boys did was stupid,” Schumacher said. “They knew they could be punished for it but they did not deserve to die.”

“Brass knuckles against an AR-15? C’mon. Who was afraid for their life?” Schumacher said.

The homeowner who pulled the trigger has not been charged with any crimes because police say he acted in self-defense. But Schumacher reinterated his belief that the consequences

Oklahoma home invasion shooting: 3 victims broke into property earlier that day

Three Oklahoma teenagers who were shot dead during a suspected home invasion this week broke into a detached garage on the property earlier the same day and stole liquor from a game room, authorities said Thursday.

Maxwell Cook, Jacob Redfern and Jakob Woodruff robbed the converted apartment earlier Monday and decided to return the house in an affluent Tulsa-area neighborhood after a woman suspected of driving them there had “indirect knowledge” there might be expensive items to steal inside, Wagoner County sheriff’s deputy Nick Mahoney said.

The alleged getaway driver, 21-year-old Elizabeth Marie Rodriguez, is jailed without bond on murder and burglary warrants. Jail records don’t list an attorney for her.

“(Rodriguez) had indirect knowledge of the household and knew indirectly there would be expensive items, and they decided that was the house to burglarize,” Mahoney said.

The three were shot by the homeowner’s son, who hasn’t been arrested. Mahoney

Woman charged with murder in Oklahoma home invasion planned the crime: police

carlballou/iStock/Thinkstock(BROKEN ARROW, Okla.) — Elizabeth Rodriguez, the woman who allegedly drove three teenage boys to a home in Oklahoma where they were shot to death after attempting a home invasion robbery, told investigators that she planned the crime, officials said.

She also told investigators that she left one of the burglars for dead, according to police.

The Wagoner County Sheriff’s office arrested Rodriguez on three first-degree murder and three first-degree burglary warrants and jailed her without bond after she told them that she had information about a shooting that took place at a home in Broken Arrow, a suburb of Tulsa.

Rodriguez waived her right to an attorney in speaking with investigators today, police said, and claimed that she had no personal connection to Zachary Peters, the 22-year-old victim of the alleged home invasion attempt, whose actions are being investigated as a potential act of self-defense under the state’s “Stand

Deadly Oklahoma home invasion: 911 calls released by police

Officials in Oklahoma have released the 911 call made after three teenage burglars were shot to death during a suspected home invasion, as police continue to investigate whether the homeowner’s son acted in self-defense under the state’s “Stand Your Ground” law.

Deputies said Zach Peters shot three teenagers shortly Monday afternoon after they broke through a glass door in the rear of the home just east of the Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow.

In the 911 call, Peters told the dispatcher he shot three people who’d broken into his house.  

“I’ve just been broken into. Two men, two I’ve shot in my house,” the 23-year-old says during the call, to which the dispatcher replied, “was one of them shot?”

“Yes, two of them,” Peters replied.

When asked by the dispatcher if they were bleeding, Peters replied “Yes. I believe one… one’s down, one’s still talking here with me now.”

He later told the dispatcher he
