As readers of this blog know, a .22 can be, and often is, deadly.
A Muskogee business owner told police he shot a man breaking into his business.
Muskogee police are investigating a case where the owner of Fast Wrecker shot a suspected burglar he says he caught breaking into his business early Thursday morning.
Oklahoma’s Stand Your Ground law expanded to businesses in 2011, that allows a business owner to shoot an intruder if they feel they fear death or great bodily harm. The intruder doesn’t have to be armed.
In the three-and-a-half minute 911 call, business owner, Dale Ford, didn’t know at first if he shot the suspected burglar.
Ford: "I fired a couple shots at him but he is here in my shop. Did I hit ya? He says I hit him in his arm. It's just a 22.”
