Oklahoma homeowner ‘fired to protect myself,’ ended home invasion

An armed homeowner was the victor following a shootout that ensued with two suspects during an attempted home invasion last week in Ada, Oklahoma.

“I got my gun out of the drawer because I heard someone smashing in here and I saw a flashlight beam,” homeowner Dennis Reif told reporters.

He heard commotion in his kitchen just before 3 am on Feb. 5. When he entered the room, he found himself face-to-face with Chris Born, who allegedly fired four shots at him but missed.

“I just quickly leveled (my gun) at him and fired to protect myself and he screamed and yelled he was hit,” Reif said, adding he had his trusty .38-caliber revolver. He shot Born twice in the chest.

Born fled the scene with his partner Dustin Hoots. After a short chase with police, Born was caught, but Hoots is still on the run. Two women in a separate vehicle were also arrested. Authorities think they served as look-outs for the two men.
