GUTHRIE, Okla. – One person was shot and killed Thursday on Guthrie’s east side.

Police said a homeowner opened fire on a naked intruder who stunned the family after breaking through a back door.

That homeowner told police his family was asleep when they first heard banging at the door.

He loaded his weapon and shot the man when he walked into the kitchen and lunged at him.

The victim’s name hasn’t been released but they said he’s a white male in his 40s who lives in the area.

Officials said the suspected intruder may have been suffering from mental health issues. 

Police found evidence the back door was pried open.

They said the homeowner acted in self defense so charges against him are not likely.
