OKLAHOMA CITY —Authorities said an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper shot and killed someone who broke into the trooper’s apartment Friday.
Officials said the shooting happened around 6:45 p.m. at Deep Deuce Apartments. The trooper was home alone and told authorities he was confronted by a man in his garage.
The trooper told police he was able to get into his apartment, retrieved a gun and shot the intruder.
Authorities said the intruder died after being transported to the hospital. Police said if the intruder was armed and the trooper felt his life was threatened, he had the right to defend himself.
Police said they believe the intruder might be a suspect in a possible attempted kidnapping from Friday on North Central Avenue, where a woman and her child were confronted by an armed man.
Police detectives were interviewing the trooper.
