LAWTON, Okla. (AP) - A southwest Oklahoma woman fatally shot a man who police say was trying to break into her home.

Police say 37-year-old Rocky Stamper wasn’t responsive when authorities arrived on the scene Tuesday morning in Lawton. He later died at a hospital.

Officers took the homeowner to the police department for questioning, but she was later released.

The woman says she woke up to Stamper standing over her with a handgun pointed to her head. She says she used a gun kept under her pillow to defend herself.

She says she and Stamper had been in a relationship that recently ended.
