DEL CITY, OK (KOCO) — Police say an aggressively drunken man who wandered up to a Del City home was shot and killed Saturday night.

According to KOCO, the intoxicated man told his wife to stay in the car and sober up while he wandered up to a home and became aggressive with the homeowner. Authorities say the homeowner shot the man, who later died at a hospital, in self-defense and out of fear after sustaining minor injuries.

Police have not released the name of the man who was shot. The district attorney's office will determine if charges will be filed against the homeowner.
