We're following breaking news out of East Tulsa where police tell us a homeowner has shot another man in the leg just a little before 5 o'clock this morning.

We've learned the homeowner told police that he found a man going through his SUV and confronted him with a shotgun. After a brief argument, the homeowner fired one shot into the man's leg.

The man was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

No word yet on if the homeowner will face charges.

FOX23 will keep you updated.

For the interest of all #8 -) the homeowner may have shot the criminal, but not for breaking into the vehicle. The criminal tried to pull a knife on the homeowner and then the homeowner shot the criminal.

I live down the street from the homeowner I am also a homeowner I would have done the same thing this homeowner did only this man is lucky this homeowner shot him in the leg. My car was broken into not to long ago along with lots of other homeowners these are adults walking out neighborhood: not even the kids are the teenagers grown men they don't have jobs and us that work for every thing we own for someone to go through your belongings rather It's in your car or home It's still wrong. These men alway look and watch as they walk I'm tired of this being ok with the police all they do is take a report and never look into it come on city of Tulsa we stand for what is ours this man who shot this man is not wrong I say thank you.

If you want to see a dramatic fall in auto burglaries the DA needs to stop bringing charges on home owners for shooting auto burglars. It's time that citizens of Tulsa take back our city.
