Subsequently, the man broke into the house, at which point the woman shot him in the chest, reportedly in an act of self-defense. Tulsa Police Officer Danny Bean stressed the gravity of the situation, acknowledging the woman’s need to protect herself. “That’s a very dangerous and delicate situation; of course, she felt for her life here.
