A woman and her boyfriend are grateful to be alive after an armed man is caught red-handed invading their home and stealing their stuff. It happened around 4:30 this morning near Ute and Birmingham Avenue.
The single mom of five children tells me this isn't the first time her home has been invaded, and she's thankful her children were with relatives and not at home at the time.
Playing games with her children is the only way that Brandie McNack knows how to relax after an armed man burst into her home early Monday morning. She tells me she and her boyfriend heard someone kick in their door. While she called 911, her boyfriend peaked out of their bedroom door.
Police say, that's when he saw 18-year-old Deangelo McBee armed with a gun….. walking around their house taking out their TV, Playstation 3 and numerous clothes. Brandie says, "We watched for a good five minutes as the intruder was coming in and taking stuff out."
Afraid for her life – she hid in this closet. When McBee came back a second time for more stuff, that's when she says her boyfriend met him at the door and began shooting at him. Brandie said,"He was like, I'm Little D. Please don't shoot and please don't call the police." Her boyfriend did shoot and ended up hitting him in the leg. McBee was taken to a local hospital but is expected to be OK.
We spoke with Tulsa police about Oklahoma's stand your ground law. Tulsa Police Department's Jillian Roberson said, "If you feel like your life is being threatened, or a family member's life is being threatened inside that home, then you have the right to protect yourself. This includes at your home, business or even inside your car. "
Police tell us they will still do a full investigation, but don't expect to file any charges against McNack or her boyfriend.
