LeFlore County Sheriff Rob Seale said a man is dead after being shot in Rock Island on Sunday.
Seale said deputies responded to a call of a home intruder on Jenson Lane in Rock Island around 5:30 p.m. Sunday.
“On arrival, deputies discovered the body of an unknown white male who had broken into the residence of a hearing-impaired female,” Seale said.
“The female at the residence got a firearm and yelled at the male to get out of the house. The male advanced toward the female who shot him one time.”
Seale said the man died at the scene in the kitchen area of the house.
“The male was unknown to the resident and she had never seen him before,” Seale said.
The man’s body has been taken to the State Medical Examiner’s Office for identification.
“The incident is still under investigation and no further information can be released at this time. Information will be updated when positive identification of the intruder is made,” Seale said.
