In the state of Oklahoma, the use of deadly force against a trespasser is generally not justified, and can lead to criminal charges, including murder or manslaughter. The state’s “Stand Your Ground” law does not extend to trespassers, and there is no “castle doctrine” law that gives homeowners the right to use deadly force to defend their property.
Oklahoma law does allow the use of non-deadly force to deter or remove trespassers, but even this is limited. A person is generally justified in using non-deadly force if they reasonably believe that such force is necessary to prevent imminent serious bodily harm to themselves or another person. However, the use of non-deadly force must be proportionate to the threat posed by the trespasser, meaning that the force used cannot be excessive.
In situations where a trespasser is causing damage to property, the property owner’s options are to call the police or to take civil action against the trespasser after the fact. Using deadly force against a trespasser who is damaging property is not justified, and could result in criminal charges.
To sum up, shooting someone for trespassing in Oklahoma is generally not justified under the state’s law. Using deadly force against a trespasser is not only illegal, but can also lead to serious criminal consequences.
