Broken Arrow, OK - The son of a homeowner in Broken Arrow killed three would-be robbers as they attempted to break in to his parents home on Monday.
Police responded to a home near 91st and Clearwater Drive in Wagoner County Monday afternoon after reports of an attempted burglary with shots fired. According to the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office, the three masked teens attempted to enter the home around 12:30 PM.
Unfortunately for them, the homeowner and his son were home and armed at the time.
As the 16, 17 and 18 year old burglars entered the home through a back glass door, they were met in the kitchen by the son who had an AR-15. Words were exchanged according to FOX News before shots were fired.
Two of the suspects were found dead in the kitchen and the third died in the driveway of the home.
A fourth suspect, a 21-year-old woman was also arrested in the area and is believed to be the getaway driver.
The teens were dressed in black and wearing masks and gloves during the incident. One teen was armed with brass knuckles and another was armed with a knife.
"Preliminary investigation looks like it was self-defense," said Wagoner County Sheriff's deputy Nick Mahoney. According to a neighbor, there have been break-ins recently in the area.
The homeowner and his son are both cooperating fully with the investigation. Neither were injured during the incident.
