TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa police say a homeowner fatally shot a man during a suspected robbery.

Tulsa Police Sgt. Dave Walker says a woman called 911 early Friday to report that a man came to her door asking to use the phone, then forced himself inside and began gathering items to steal. Walker says a man who lived at the home retrieved a handgun and shot the suspect.

The suspected robber ran out of the home and collapsed nearby, where he was pronounced dead. Police have not yet released his name.

No one has been arrested in the shooting death.
