Lawton Man Protecting His Home Ends Up in Jail

Posted: Updated:

Lawton,Okla_What started as an effort to protect his home from burglars last week ended up landing a Lawton man in jail.

According to an affidavit, officers responded to a shots fired call in the 500 block of NE Carver last Thursday night.

Investigators say 21year-old Stephan Golson admitted to firing the shots because he thought someone was trying to break into his house.  When officers searched Golson's home, they found a 12-gauge shotgun in his living room.  They also found a large quantity of marijuana.

Police arrested Golson, who is already a convicted felon, on possession of a firearm.
He is now facing up to 10 years in prison.
