Homeowner shot during SW Oklahoma City home invasion; suspects on the run
OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City police are investigating a home invasion that happened early Monday morning on the city’s southwest side.
At around 2:30 a.m., police were called to the area near SW 47th and Western for a possible shooting.
The homeowner told police he was asleep when a black male in a dark hoodie and ski mask woke him up by holding a revolver to his face, demanding the combination to a safe.
The homeowner grabbed the male by the throat as the male grabbed the homeowner’s cell phone.
That’s when the man shot the homeowner in his left knee before fleeing.
Another person was in the house and said she did not hear anything before someone grabbed her arm and pointed a gun in her face. A male asked her who was in the house and then led her outside where she said she saw another male.
A third person was outside in the backyard working when he heard a noise and saw the black male who had grabbed the second victim. He told police he saw three other black males, all in dark clothing.
He then grabbed a knife and all four suspects ran from the home.
The homeowner was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police say the four suspects are still on the run. No suspect descriptions have been released.
The incident remains under investigation.
