    A Tulsa man faces manslaughter charges after police say he shot his girlfriend. 

    Xavier Dixon, 21, told police his girlfriend left his home around noon Tuesday, then contacted him more than an hour before the shooting, saying she wanted to return but did not want to intrude. 

    He claimed to be elsewhere. 

    About 90 minutes later, Dixon said he heard his front gate open, then heard someone attempting to open his bedroom window. He fired once. 

    Detectives say he then added to his story, saying he saw the person moving and shot again. When he went to get his phone, he grabbed a flashlight.

    Her name has not yet been released, but officers say her family was notified. 

    Dixon was arrested on complaints of first-degree manslaughter.
