“A metro man confronts and shoots an intruder after police say he forced his way into the southwest Oklahoma City home. According to the resident, who did not want to be identified, he hesitated to pull the trigger. He said after Derial Goode Jr. managed to force his locked front door open, he was stirred awake. The resident thought the noise was caused by his niece walking through the house but was wrong. ‘He was sitting at my kitchen table, just sitting there, not saying a word,’ said the resident. The homeowner says Goode barely spoke. ‘He started walking around mumbling and went into my living room, knocked some pictures down, so I went into my bedroom and grabbed my gun,’ said the man. … Goode was arrested on complaints of breaking and entering and public intoxication.” (08/01/22)
