Oklahoma Homeowner Shoots and Kills Alleged Intruder

A 50-year-old man, Buddy Driver, is dead after allegedly trying to break into a home in Hollis, Oklahoma.

Driver was trying to go through a window of the home when he learned the hard way that armed homeowners will do what is necessary to protect themselves. Driver was pronounced dead at the scene, according to KFOR in Oklahoma.

While Oklahoma does not have a specific Castle Doctrine law, the state does have Stand-Your-Ground.

Stand-Your-Ground laws allow citizens not to retreat from danger even if they are in a place where they are publicly allowed to be. Because the citizen who shot Driver was in their own home, there is no obligation to try and run away first.

Police are still investigating the shooting of Driver at this time, but it is difficult to see any other outcome than Driver being shot by a homeowner in self-defense.
