Hearing-impaired woman fatally shoots intruder in Oklahoma

ROCK ISLAND, Okla. (AP) — Authorities in eastern Oklahoma say a hearing-impaired woman has fatally shot an intruder inside her home near the Arkansas border.

Le Flore County Sheriff Rob Seale said Monday the woman was uninjured when a man broke into her home about 5:30 p.m. Sunday in Rock Island, about 190 miles (306 kilometers) east of Oklahoma City.

Seale says the woman yelled at the man to get out of the house and shot him once when he moved toward her. He says the woman did not know the man and had never seen him before.

Deputies discovered the suspect's body in the kitchen area of the house. He was pronounced dead at the scene. He has not been identified and his body was transported to the state Medical Examiner's Office for identification.

Oklahoma's Calum Sutherland arrested, public intoxication

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma kicker Calum Sutherland has been arrested on a public intoxication charge.

Records from the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office in Norman indicate the 19-year-old Sutherland was booked shortly before 5 a.m. Saturday. Sheriff's spokeswoman Joy Hampton says Sutherland was released about three hours later.

Further details weren't immediately available about bond. Online jail records didn't list details on an attorney representing Sutherland, who was arrested in Norman.
