TULSA, Oklahoma -

Police are investigating after a Tulsa homeowner shot a man he says had broken into his home.

The incident occurred in the 1900 block of North Birmingham.

Tulsa Police got a 911 call at 4:45 a.m. Officers say a man armed with a rifle had broken into a home when a man inside the home fired once with a handgun, hitting the intruder in the upper leg.

When police officers and EMSA paramedics arrived, they found DeAngelo McBee, 18, lying in the street. EMSA took him to a hospital. Officers said McBee's wound is considered non-life threatening.

Police say the homeowner told them once the man got inside and was making his way to a bedroom where the homeowner's family was hiding, the homeowner fired his handgun.

Officers say they'll arrest McBee on a burglary complaint once he is released from the hospital.

The homeowner was not injured.
